The International Tennis Federation (ITF) will start using Sportradar’s Integrity Services to increase measures against corruption linked to betting.

An agreement reached last week will enable the use of Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System to monitor betting patterns across more than 50,000 ITF Pro Circuit tennis matches, the company said in a press release.

Sportradar’s Integrity Services includes monitoring and detection that the company already provides to over 70 sporting federations, including FIFA, NBA and World Rugby; education and prevention, to increase awareness of illegal betting and match-fixing; and intelligence and investigations, that identifies organisations, individuals and relationships that enable organized match-fixing worldwide.

Sportradar’s services will be added to the current set of anti-corruption measures deployed by ITF in the Pro Circuit.

The Tennis Integrity Unit, the department responsible for investigating breaches of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program and in which the ITF is a partner, will also be able to use Sportradar’s intelligence and investigations capabilities, the company said.

“Combating match-fixing and other forms of corruption in tennis is crucial in ensuring the long-term health of the game,” ITF President David Haggerty said. “Sportradar brings added expertize and capabilities to existing anti-corruption measures and shares our commitment and passion for protecting the integrity of the game.”
