Hong Kong Football Association partners with Sportradar

HKfootballThe Hong Kong Football Association has signed an agreement with the  Sportradar to gain intelligence and global betting on over 100 games per season until July 2017.

Hong Kong Football Association CEO Mark Sutcliffe travelled to Manchester England to sign the agreement which will see Sportradar’s system cover all 113 games of Hong Kong’s Premier League, League Cup, Community Shield, Senior Shield, FA Cup and Play-offs each season.

“As part of our commitment to providing our clients with 24/7 coverage of football worldwide, Sportradar opened its first Asian office in Hong Kong. So it is incredibly exciting for us to add our ‘local’ FA from Hong Kong to the list of associations who will not compromise on integrity.”

Sutcliffe said it has really been impossible to ignore the credibility and reputation of Sportradar’s Security Services both in the region and internationally.

“So to have the FDS monitoring all our professional level football is reassuring and to have that in place for three seasons underlines our own commitment to keeping our competitions safe. Soccerex is the forum where football meets and to be able to put pen to paper here in Manchester and to be able to show our resolve to our fellow football leaders attending the match-fixing panel this morning was an opportunity the Hong Kong FA could not miss,” he said.
