The agreement will see Sportradar provide its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) to each WBSC international competition for the duration of the contract.

The UFDS is a bet monitoring system that analyses betting patterns looking for abnormalities; if any are found, they are reported to partners, allowing critical visibility into worldwide match-fixing.

The system has been independently assessed and verified by experts in the field of sports betting and integrity.

Sportradar Integrity Services have detected more than 6,900 suspicious games across different sports during the past 17 years; 900 of those took place in 2021 alone.

WBSC President Riccardo Fraccari commented on the deal: "We're looking forward to benefiting from Sportradar's expertise in providing bet monitoring and intelligence solutions for appropriate detection and investigation of threats to sports integrity, maintaining baseball and softball’s game unpredictability and safeguarding the international game from manipulation.

“Following the IOC’s and specifically the Olympic Movement Unit on the Prevention of the Manipulation of Competition’s leadership in the prevention of competition manipulation, we are working towards enhancing the protection of clean baseball and softball athletes with this new agreement.”

Sportradar is a supplier of sports integrity solutions and a partner to over 100 sports federations and leagues.

The WBSC Integrity Unit, in collaboration with the IOC Olympic Movement Unit on the Prevention of the Manipulation of Competition, has recently organised a two-part series of webinars about manipulation in competitions.
