Swedish Football Association partners with Sportradar Integrity Services
The Swedish Football Association (SvFF) have today signed an agreement with Sportradar Integrity Services – the world’s leading supplier of sports integrity solutions – to monitor and safeguard the integrity of their domestic football competitions.
Under the agreement, Sportradar will monitor over 2,000 matches from the Swedish Ettan, Division 2, U21 Allsvenskan, U19 Allsvenskan, and club friendlies involving Swedish teams during the 2021 season, using its market leading bet monitoring solution, the Fraud Detection System (FDS). Sportradar have previously supported the SvFF with its ongoing investigation into a former Allsvenskan player, and under this agreement, the SvFF will again be able to call upon Sportradar’s Intelligence & Investigation Services during the term of the partnership.
Johan Claesson, SvFF Integrity Officer said: ” We are taking all the necessary steps to safeguard our game, and by bringing Sportradar Integrity Services on board to monitor our competitions, we now have valuable global oversight of betting markets through their integrity specialists. By also adding their Intelligence and Investigation services to our integrity programme, we are confident that we will gain an extra layer of visibility and insight into potential integrity risks, as we have already witnessed through collaboration on a current investigation.”
Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director Andreas Krannich added: “We are honoured to be working alongside the SvFF, and the integrity of Swedish football is further strengthened as a result. At Sportradar we have witnessed growing integrity issues across global football at lower levels of competition – including youth football – in recent years, and we believe that it is vitally important to have integrity oversight over all levels of the beautiful game. We are delighted that SvFF have recognised the importance of this through today’s agreement, and we look forward to supporting their integrity programme in the year ahead.”
