“This partnership will ensure exactly that and we appreciate Sportradar’s support and expertise.”

Andreas Kimmich, Managing Director of Sportradar’s Sport Right Owners, said: “The reputation that we have established over 11 years across sport and more recently in ice hockey through our work with the IIHF and the NHL, coupled with the strong and trustful relationship we have established with Austria’s Play Fair Code, allowed us to put forward a vital and credible proposition to the EBEL.

“We would like to thank the Play Fair Code for their trust in us and of course their dedication and work around sporting integrity in Austria. We would also like to thank the EBEL for their trust and commitment.”
