The Deutsche Fußball Liga (DFL), the governing body of German professional football leagues has expanded its ‘Together Against Match-Fixing’ programme with sorts data, intelligence and content provider Sportradar
Working in partnership with Sportradar, the DFL will expand its integrity workshops programme for Bundesliga syndicated football clubs
Seeking to diminish match-fixing factors and dynamics across German football development, the DFL has stated that it will make the Sportradar workshops mandatory for all licensed athletes.
In particular, the training programme emphasises communicating sports integrity values to younger players and preventing match-fixing or criminal exposure at German youth academy levels.
‘Since the 2014/15 season, it has already been compulsory for the clubs to take suitable prevention measures against match-fixing in the Youth Academies for age groups from U-16 to U-23.’ details Sportradar in its update.
Further to launching new education verticals, Sportradar will support the DFL with a dedicated e-learning tool, as well as a mobile app.
Sportradar has monitored DFL syndicated matches and competitions since 2005, and further analyses DFL and DFB betting-related markets across 7,000 events per season.
