FIFA EWS partners with Perform Group for better match monitoring


Sports data and content supplier Perform Group has confirmed that it has agreed to enter a monitoring and match integrity partnership with FIFA subsidiary Early Warning System (EWS).

Perform are set to integrate football data supplies into the EWS monitoring system, which will include historical match data and live performance analysis. The partnership will aim to improve EWS capabilities of detecting and analysing suspicious behaviour which may be related to illegal betting activities.

FIFA EWS will enhance its abilities to monitor and study match manipulation as the new European football season enters into full swing.

“This cooperation with a leading sports data service provider is a perfect fit for our monitoring approach to ensure an effective and fact-based match analysis. Perform is a very strong partner in the global fight against match manipulation, and such cooperation represents a fundamental keystone of our overall strategy,” said FIFA’s Director of Security, Ralf Mutschke.

“Perform fully supports EWS and its commitment to monitor and respond to the threat of match manipulation. We are delighted that Perform digital content can so readily be used in partnership with rights holders in order to strengthen the integrity of competitions. We look forward to cooperating with EWS for the benefit of FIFA competitions and those of its associations and confederations for a long time to come,” said Perform Director of Integrity and Security, Matthew Drew.
