Sportradar seals BCCI partnership ahead of IPL launch

Sportradar Integrity Services has entered into a new agreement with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which will see the sports integrity solutions provider monitor any betting irregularities during the 2020 Indian Premier League.

As part of the agreement, Sportradar will support the BCCI’s anti-corruption unit to monitor and safeguard the integrity of the matches.

Sportradar Integrity Services’ Managing Director Andreas Krannich commented: “It is an honour to partner with the BCCI for the 2020 IPL season. As the global leader in sporting integrity, we hope to provide our expertise and help protect the tournament against integrity related issues.

“We know that the BCCI takes integrity seriously, and we look forward to working alongside them throughout the tournament and providing our support to their integrity programme.”

In addition, Sportradar will also provide a risk assessment to the BCCI driven by intelligence and data-driven insights. Furthermore, the BCCI will be able to call upon Sportradar’s Intelligence and Investigation Services during the term of the partnership, if required.

The partnership further expands Sportradar’s presence in India, having previously secured agreements with the Indian Super League and the Pro Kabaddi League.
