December 16 – Sportradar has expanded its relationship with the Dutch FA (KNVB) with an agreement with its Intelligence and Investigation Services (I&I) unit to provide increased investigative resource into irregular betting patterns, match manipulation and corruption.
“We are confident that this partnership will put us in the strongest possible position to uphold the integrity of our competitions,” said Jan Peter Dogge, Integrity Officer KNVB.
“KNVB takes the threat of match-fixing and other sporting corruption extremely seriously… Through this new intelligence partnership, we are looking forward to strengthening our integrity protections in these important areas.”
Sportradar’s I&I team collects and monitors all publicly available information on the surface, deep and dark web. It will focus on the constant identification and investigation of the potential integrity threats facing the KVNB, in particular in relation to match-fixing but not confined to match-fixing.
Andreas Krannich, Managing Director Integrity Services, Sportradar, said: “Corruption in sport lives beyond match fixing and the importance of robust due diligence measures that touch every area of business cannot be underestimated. The evolving threats of match manipulation and other sporting corruption highlight the need for a constant and proactive approach to tackling potential integrity issues.”
