Our mission is to detect, investigate and prevent betting-related match-fixing and to build sustainable partnerships with integrity stakeholders. Our role is to act as a consultant for sports federations and state authorities alike. One of our key objectives at Sportradar is to increase the awareness of participants, administrators and state authorities to the growing threat of betting related match-fixing.
what we offer
Monitoring, Detection and Intelligence
In response to the increasing threat of betting related manipulation in sports, in 2005 Sportradar launched its first system to monitor and analyse the worldwide betting market for suspicious betting patterns.
Now using its unique Fraud Detection System (FDS), Sportradar supports sport federations as well as state authorities and law enforcement institutions with their expertise to detect and prevent betting-related manipulation.
Prevention, Education & Consultancy
Whilst the FDS monitors and highlights suspected manipulated matches, Sportradar has recognised the importance of services that are more proactive and preventative.
The Fraud Prevention Service (FPS) offers sports associations and law enforcement agencies all the intelligence, insight and information they need to defend against match-fixing. Whether they are currently facing a real problem in their sport or they have the foresight to get ahead of the problem, the FPS offers a solution to match their needs.
who we are
Sportradar’s Integrity Services team consists of over 50 full-time employees and is separated into two distinct areas – the FDS and the FPS. The FDS is in place to monitor and detect corruption once it occurs, and the data informs the work of the FPS which is in place to provide educational programmes to players and officials, and serves as a powerful deterrent before corruption takes place.
40+ Senior Integrity Analysts
Distributed across three international hubs: London, Manila and Sydney, our team of over 40 Senior Integrity Analysts make up a key component of our Fraud Detection System. Supported by dedicated colleagues from our operational offices in Minneapolis, Montevideo, Tallinn and Gera, their collective role is to understand, analyse and evaluate the suspicious patterns that are spotted at any of the 550 betting operators we monitor. As a result, these expert analysts are drawn from all corners of the betting industry: from regulated and unregulated operators, from Asian and non-Asian bookmakers, from retail and online operators, from state lotteries and exchanges, as well as from spread bet operators. It is this breadth of experience, coupled with their years at the front-line of the industry, that makes our Fraud Detection System so intuitive.
Extensive Support Network
To ensure that the FDS is as accurate and valuable as possible, our team of analysts can also call upon our extensive network of over 75 freelance researchers, who are spread across countries and sports. They are our “people on the ground”, who add an extra layer of depth to our FDS analysis and who can provide our analysts with local information and market intelligence. In the event that we have identified suspicious betting patterns, their input can prove pivotal in contextualising those movements in the market.
Around our team of Integrity Analysts, we have assembled a management team that guide and support the work of our FDS. Senior managers drawn from the sports industry and the betting industry guide the development of the business, while the Sales team dotted across four continents increase the breadth of coverage we offer. We also have an Education team that leads the development and execution of our responsive and interactive awareness-raising programmes and tours. Finally, we have individuals tasked with cultivating relationships at various levels of public service as well as law enforcement. This reflects the movement of match-fixing further up the priorities of public authorities and police forces and illustrates the credibility of our processes, services and conclusions.
Our ten years in the integrity space have helped us solidify our position as trusted market leaders. Initially, we focused on relationships amongst sports federations and rights holders: today we have a range of relationships, from the largest and most successful international federations and confederations, through to national leagues and even clubs. But we have built on this foundation of trust. Our relationship now include public authorities at EU and national levels, gambling regulators, international and national law enforcement agencies, as well as a full range of media.
