Sportradar adds 10-year extension to EHF integrity deal

Sportradar has extended its integrity partnership with the European Handball Federation (EHF) for a further 10 years. 

Under the agreement, Sportradar Integrity Services will provide a range of solutions and services to help safeguard EHF national team, club and international youth competitions from integrity threats through to 2030.

Celebrating the 10-year extension, Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director Andreas Krannich said: “We have been proud partners of the EHF since 2018 and are delighted to be extending our integrity agreement over the next decade. 

“Over the past three years of our partnership, we have supported the EHF with a triple-pronged approach of bet monitoring, education and prevention, and intelligence and investigations solutions. 

“With today’s news, our cooperation is signalling a decade-long commitment to integrity in Handball, and as a result, EHF competitions are perfectly positioned to thrive over the next 10 years.”

Sportradar has agreed to deploy its Fraud Detection System (FDS), which will help identify and assess any abnormal betting activities across more than 10,000 matches. 

In addition, teams, players, match officials, delegates and other key stakeholders will benefit from a number of workshops which have been tailored towards educating individuals on the risks associated with match-fixing and the promotion of ‘correct and ethical’ betting behaviours.

The partnership will also see Sportradar’s Intelligence & Investigation Services support the EHF’s intelligence programme, by using a dedicated team to ‘help investigate integrity threats’.

Martin Hausleitner, EHF Secretary General, added: “Sportradar have been a valued and trusted partner of ours over the past three years, and we are pleased to extend our cooperation over the course of this decade. 

“The EHF is committed to protecting the integrity of its flagship club and national team competitions, and by utilizing a multifaceted approach to integrity, we believe that EHF competitions are well safeguarded from the modern-day integrity threats that face our sport.”
