Sportradar dives into safeguarding the integrity of World Aquatics

Sportradar Integrity Services has linked with World Aquatics in a two-year deal that will see the pair work to monitor international water polo matches.

Over 450 matches will be analysed, including the Men’s and Women’s Water Polo Tournaments at the World Aquatics Championships, the Men’s and Women’s U20 Championships, and the Men’s and Women’s Water Polo World Cups. 

Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director, Andreas Krannich, said: “In recent years we have seen match fixers infiltrate an ever-increasing range of global sports at various levels of competition, including youth events. 

“Aquatic sports are not immune to such integrity threats, and we are committed to providing the strongest integrity provisions using our technology to protect World Aquatics water polo competitions over the next two years.”  

The competitions have and will continue to be covered by Sportradar’s Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS).

Now aiding aquatics, over the past 18 years the firm’s AI-driven bet monitoring system has helped identify more than 8,000 suspicious matches across other sports.

“We are firmly dedicated to protecting our competitions from integrity threats, particularly as we move closer to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games,” added World Aquatics Executive Director, Brent J. Nowicki.

“The depth of knowledge that Sportradar Integrity Services provides through its UFDS platform and expert team puts us in a great position to mitigate any betting-related issues that may arise across our competitions.”
