Sportradar Teams with Europol

EU 3Sports and betting-related services company Sportradar has entered into a partnership with Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement agency, in an effort to protect sporting integrity across the continent.

The two parties, which have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, will now begin considering projects they can collaborate on or support each other with.

Such activities will include the exchange of expertise, statistical data, information and trends in relation to the integrity of sports.

“In order to try and stop match fixing, stakeholders from many different areas need to work closely together,” Europol deputy director Wil van Gemert said.

“I look forward to our cooperation with Sportradar, and the aim is to make it more difficult for match fixers and manipulators to hide.”

Carsten Koerl, chief executive officer of Sportradar, added: “Europol have long played an active role in discussions, projects and investigations around the issue of match-fixing.

“The fact we have signed this agreement to share information and collaborate on projects is a huge distinction for our Security Services and our Fraud Detection System.”
