Leading sports data, insights and media rights provider Sportradar has continued to enhance its US profile, after announcing that it has become the lead integrity services/systems supplier for the United Soccer League (USL).
The USL maintains the highest authority for professional men’s soccer in the United States and Canada.
Moving forward, all USL syndicated leagues, competitions and matches will be monitored and analysed by Sportradar’s fraud detection systems, improving USL all-round data collection and integrity capacities.
“There is nothing more important than protecting the overall integrity of our League,” said USL Senior Vice President Lizzie Seedhouse. “We have to stay vigilant in the ways we protect our players and teams, and in the ever-changing landscape of sports betting in the United States, education for all those with access to influence the game is paramount.”
Beyond monitoring and data collection, Sportradar will support USL staff, officials and players with educational solutions in English and Spanish, educating stakeholders on football integrity risks, manipulations and match-fixing.
“We are honoured and excited to partner with USL and look forward to supporting them in installing a best-in-class integrity program,” added Andy Cunningham, Director, Global Strategy of Integrity Services at Sportradar.
“They have shown a strong commitment to upholding the integrity of their competitions and protecting their stakeholders.”
