Major industry supplier Sportradar strongly opposed a report in the Italian media that links the company to the long-running criminal investigation into Galassia.
The business issued a statement that firmly refutes the claims made in the article published by Business Insider Italia and stated that it finds many of the accusations and statements made as false, unfounded and defamatory.
It continued: “Sportradar acts, and has always acted, in full compliance with local and international regulations, legal requirements and regulatory bodies, and has never been involved in any alleged illegal activities.
“Sportradar provides services to hundreds of sporting authorities both in Italy and globally, and actively supports and works alongside local and international police and law enforcement authorities in their fight against corruption and crime.
“Our work has uncovered some of the most high-profile illicit practices aimed at manipulating sporting competitions in Italy, Europe and worldwide.
“The article in question is wholly inaccurate and misrepresents our work both in Italy and globally. Sportradar completely rejects its content and the allegations made and may be taking appropriate legal action to protect its business and reputation.
“While we will not be making further comment on this at this time, we take these allegations very seriously and they will be appropriately addressed.”
