Sportradar Renews Integrity Partnership With EHF

For a further 10 years, Sportradar has expanded its Integrity Partnership with the European Handball Federation (EHF).

Sportradar Integrity Services will offer a number of solutions and services under the agreement to help protect EHF national teams, clubs and international youth tournaments from challenges to integrity by 2030.

Extension of agreement

Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director Andreas Krannich, celebrating the 10-year extension, said: “We have been proud partners of the EHF since 2018 and are delighted to be extending our integrity agreement over the next decade. 

“Over the past three years of our partnership, we have supported the EHF with a triple-pronged approach of bet monitoring, education and prevention, and intelligence and investigations solutions. 

“With today’s news, our cooperation is signalling a decade-long commitment to integrity in Handball, and as a result, EHF competitions are perfectly positioned to thrive over the next 10 years.”

Fraud Detection System

Sportradar has agreed to introduce its Fraud Detection System (FDS), which will assist in detecting and assessing any irregular betting activities across more than 10,000 matches.

In addition, a series of seminars that have been tailored to educate people on the risks associated with match-fixing and the promotion of ‘correct and ethical’ betting practices would help teams, clubs, match officials, delegates and other key stakeholders.

Complement EHF’s intelligence network

The collaboration will also see Sportradar Intelligence & Investigation Services complement the intelligence network of the EHF by using a dedicated team to ‘help investigate integrity threats.’

EHF Secretary General, Martin Hausleitner, added: “Sportradar have been a valued and trusted partner of ours over the past three years, and we are pleased to extend our cooperation over the course of this decade. 

“The EHF is committed to protecting the integrity of its flagship club and national team competitions, and by utilizing a multifaceted approach to integrity, we believe that EHF competitions are well safeguarded from the modern-day integrity threats that face our sport.”
