Sportradar Integrity Services to continue monitoring European Table Tennis

Sportradar Integrity Services has agreed to monitor competitions of the European Table Tennis Union via its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS).

The UFDS has previously provided integrity oversight of the 2022 European Championships in Munich last month already, which was labelled a success. 

The extended deal includes upcoming matches in the European Championships, and Men’s and Women’s Champions League, amongst further key events.

“We have witnessed ever-growing integrity threats over the years, particularly due to recent global events, as well as an increased betting interest in sports such as table tennis and are excited to have entered into this partnership with the European Table Tennis Union,” added Sportradar Integrity Services Managing Director, Andreas Krannich.

“At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our sporting partners’ efforts to detect and prevent such threats and look forward to supporting the integrity programme of the European Table Tennis Union in the years ahead.”

Through the UFDS, betting patterns on European Table Tennis competitions will be analysed for abnormalities. Any suspicious matches will be reported, allowing ‘critical visibility’ into potential match-fixing threats. 

Sportradar Integrity Services has detected over 7,500 suspicious matches during the past 17 years with over 800 of these taking place in 2022 alone.

The agreement comes after a month of extensive activity by SIS, which entered into partnerships with the International Golf Federation (IGF), Saudi Arabian Football Federation (SAAF) and newly launched betting operator Twain Sport.

European Table Tennis Union acting President, Pedro Moura, said: “Protecting the integrity of European Table Tennis is a top priority, so it is vital that there are robust measures in place to safeguard our competitions from match-fixing. 

“Through this partnership, men’s, women’s and youth events are all now being monitored through the UFDS. Sportradar has a proven track record in the sports integrity industry, and their expert bet monitoring capabilities will play a crucial role in helping to protect the integrity of European Table Tennis events.”
