Indonesia FA looks to safeguard integrity with Sportradar

sportsradarThe Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI) underlined its commitment to protecting the integrity of the country’s key football competitions by signing an agreement with Sportradar. Under the agreement, Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System (FDS) will provide the PSSI with unrivalled intelligence about global betting on the Indonesia Super League and various other competitions until the end of 2016.

Sportradar’s FDS, which recently received an ISO certificate of quality, will be used to monitor betting behaviour and patterns for the remaining 290 matches of the 2014 season, including the 2014 ISL season and Divisi Utama. Then, the system will cover all 1,538 matches in both the 2015 and 2016 ISL, Inter-Island Cup and Divisi Utama. The PSSI are also in discussions to start using the company’s Fraud Prevention Services (FPS) to help educate those involved in Indonesian football about the dangers of match-fixing.

Managing Director Strategy and Integrity Andreas Krannich, who signed the agreement on behalf of Sportradar said: “Monitoring over 1,800 matches for the Football Association of Indonesia is a responsibility that we take very seriously. The PSSI have not only put their faith in us and our Fraud Detection System, but they have done so for the long term. This is a great honour and we will work tirelessly in partnership with the PSSI to ensure that full and fair competition prevails across Indonesia”.

Joko Driyono, General Secretary of PSSI added: “We understand that approximately US$65million (IDR750,000,000,000) is bet on the ISL alone every season. This is a staggering figure. We cannot afford for even $1 of that to be placed on a manipulated outcome.

We at the PSSI are absolutely committed to ensuring that football in Indonesia is exciting for players, attractive for sponsors and broadcasters and exhilarating for fans. Credibility and integrity is key to all of that andthat is why we have brought Sportradar on board as our partners. There simply is no better system out there to highlight and explain suspicious betting behaviours around sporting events and we look forward to working closely with them over the next two and half years”.
