The PRO 14 Rugby organisation has underlined its commitment to safeguarding the integrity of the competition by announcing a deal with SportRadar.com Integrity Services.
Under the terms of the partnership, each of the 152 games played in the Guinness PRO14 each season will be carefully monitored by Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System (FDS), which is known throughout the industry as one of the most advanced bet monitoring protocols.
The FDS is a key part of Sportradar’s portfolio of integrity measures that also includes automated alerts from bookmakers around the world, and anonymised account-level data from over 100 betting operators to provide a complete integrity-safeguarding solution.
Integrity related threats
The Managing Director of Integrity Services at Sportradar, Andreas Krannich said that he was looking forward to working with the rugby authority:
We are delighted to be working alongside Guinness PRO14 and offering our expertise to help safeguard the competition against integrity related threats.”
The Guinness PRO14 is the latest sports body to announce a deal with Sportradar, following the Six Nations, European Championship Rugby, New Zealand Rugby Union, Australian Rugby Union, Italian Rugby Union and the Rugby Football Union.
According to the CEO of the PRO14, Martin Anayi, the deal with Sportradar was part of the company’s ongoing efforts to safeguard the sport:
“As the Guinness PRO14 continues to grow and set new standards on the pitch and on the commercial front, it is vital that we ensure that the integrity of the Championship remains uncompromised. Behind the scenes we are doing a lot of work around governance and this partnership with Sportradar adds an extra level of credibility and scrutiny to the tournament.”
