CONACAF extend partnership with Sportradar

By Brad Allen
Data analyst Sportradar will monitor betting on Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) football tournaments for the 2014-15 season, under the terms of a renewed deal.

Sportradar will utilise their Fraud Detection System (FDS), which monitors worldwide betting patterns, to fight match-fixing in the region.

"Protecting our competitions from every negative impact is very important for us. The Fraud Detection System is a powerful tool in our arsenal in the fight against match manipulation," said Concacaf director of sports integrity Dr Lailas Mintas.

Sportradar's FDS is also used by Uefa and the Asian Football Confederation.

The company's managing director of strategy and integrity Andreas Kennich said: "Concacaf is a vibrant and progressive confederation, and a key stakeholder in the global football landscape. They have shown an ongoing commitment to achieving and promoting sporting integrity in all its guises. It is a badge of honour for Sportradar that they continue to see us as one of their key allies.”
