Starlizard launches Komodo free to sport stakeholders in fight against match-fixing

March 9 – Starlizard Integrity Services (SIS) – match-fixing monitoring specialists and the integrity division of London-based sports betting consultancy Starlizard – has launched its new online match-fixing alert system Komodo.

Komodo is being offered free of charge to sports governing bodies and law enforcement agencies globally in the fight against match manipulation in sport.

Affy Sheikh, Head of Starlizard Integrity Services, said: “We believe the future success of anti-match fixing efforts depends on more and better information being made freely available to integrity officers and investigators by true experts in this field. Komodo is an innovative tool that does just that.”

Komodo flags suspicious matches and provides governing bodies with an analysis of both betting market activity that are matched to on-field performances, where applicable.

The Komodo reports are designed to assist with anti-match-fixing investigations, and in some cases can be used as evidence in legal proceedings. SIS evidence has already confirmed by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) as an appropriate tool in the fight against match-fixing.

Komodo will initially cover football, with cricket and other sports following soon. “Users will receive operational alerts whenever a game is allocated an integrity red flag, but will also benefit from an interactive platform that identifies and visualises trends and patterns within their respective sports and jurisdictions,” said Starlizard.

Steve Edery, CEO of Starlizard, said: “Starlizard is committed to supporting sports governing bodies and enforcement agencies around the globe in their efforts to combat match-fixing. Having provided integrity services to sports since 2010, we established Starlizard Integrity Services in 2017 as a dedicated division of the company, focusing entirely on integrity matters and working closely with sports integrity stakeholders to provide them with valuable insights and intelligence into market activity and behaviour. Komodo represents our latest contribution to this global collaboration against corruption in sport.”
