MoU

Sportradar strikes first operator association MoU in Portugal

Sportradar has secured its first Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an operators’ association through APAJO, the Portuguese Association of Online Betting and Gaming.

The company’s Integrity Services division has committed to improving the investigation into possible corruption, particularly in Portuguese sport, by exchanging data and information related to sports integrity.

Furthermore, Sportradar and APAJO will explore opportunities for additional projects such as those promoting sports integrity education in line with the values of the Portuguese State as outlined by the Regime Jurídico dos Jogos e Apostas Online (RJO) – the country’s legal framework for online gambling and betting.

Gabino Oliveira, President of APAJO, said: “APAJO members now have a formal channel available to communicate on integrity matters with the world-wide leading experts in this field which will prove mutually beneficial. 

“We also look forward to exploring further cooperation opportunities in sports integrity education. Portugal was one of the first countries to ratify the Macolin Convention and hence, we are happy to work here in line with our government’s engagement.”

Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director Andreas Krannich added: “Sportradar are firm supporters of the Council of Europe’s Macolin Convention.

“Initiatives like this MoU we have signed today with APAJO is a clear commitment that we both buy in to the spirit of this convention and are ready to back it up with action. Portuguese sport will become safer with this cooperation.”
