Andreas Krannich, Managing Director Integrity Services at Sportradar welcomed MotoGP to Sportradar services commenting
“We do speak to sports who feel distant or immune to the problem of fixing. That is not MotoGP’s stance. They have been inquisitive, invested and definitive.
They have sought the full suite of our Integrity Services to ensure that no stone is left unturned and that no compromises are made. We look forward to working with them and their stakeholder for the next few years and helping them keep MotoGP an example of best practice in the world of motorsports”.
