Sportradar Signs With International Handball Federation

This week the International Handball Federation announced that they've signed an agreement with Sportradar Integrity Services in a deal that'll see Sportradar monitoring events to avoid match-fixing.

The agreement will see Sportradar using its Universal Fraud Detection System to monitor IHF-sanctioned matches, be it Men's, Women's, Junior, and Youth World Championship events. The IHF Super Globe series is also going to be monitored. The sport of handball is popular throughout Europe and is played globally, being featured in events like the Olympics.

Commenting on the deal IHF President Dr Hassan Moustafa said, "We recognize the modern-day integrity threats that face global sport, and handball is no exception. The IHF makes it a top priority to have robust measures in place to help safeguard the integrity of our major events, not just at men's and women's senior level, but also at the youth and junior levels.

"Sportradar have a proven track record in the field of sports integrity, and the depth of their bet monitoring capabilities will help to support our overall integrity programme in the years ahead."

Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director Andreas Krannich also commented, noting: "We are delighted to partner with IHF to help support their integrity programme with our UFDS bet monitoring solution.

"We have witnessed rising integrity issues in handball over the past five years, and so we credit the vigilance shown by IHF in adding to the integrity provisions surrounding their events.

"At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our partners' integrity efforts and look forward to working together with the IHF to support the journey of global handball in the coming years."
