Sportradar to Monitor Six Nations Rugby Matches

Internet gambling data firm Sportradar has announced that it has signed a deal with Six Nations Rugby Limited, and will monitor betting activity to prevent fraudulent activity.

As a result of the deal Sportradar will provide Six Nations with its Fraud Prevention services, and educate officials from each of the six countries participating in the competition.

Commenting on the deal Six Nations Rugby Limited Tournament and Operations Director Jon Davis said, “To date, rugby, particularly international rugby, has thankfully stayed clear of match-fixing and match manipulation. But we would be naïve to discount the risk altogether, so, in order to head off the possibility, The Six Nations in consultation with the six Unions decided that the Sportradar service would send a clear message.”
