Genius Sports enhances integrity monitoring for DFB football 

DFB, the German Football Association, has strengthened its partnership with Genius Sports to enhance its capabilities against match-fixing and betting-related corruption. 

Since 2019, Genius Sports has been instrumental in arming DFB with its state-of-the-art Bet Monitoring System – a state-of-the-art system which analyses global odds movements in more than 7,500 games annually using predictive algorithms and automatically flags any potentially suspicious betting activity.

DFB will continue to benefit from this 24/7 monitoring and analysis across all levels of German football, thus fortifying its guard against unethical practices.

Taking this partnership a step further, DFB is now leveraging Genius Sports’ robust Intelligence platform, which is furnished in conjunction with Clue. This amplified collaboration will equip DFB with an advanced capability to recognise patterns more quickly, significantly increasing the visibility of threats posed to players, match officials, and coaches.

A new feature of this enhanced partnership is the centralized vault of all integrity reports provided by the Genius Sports Intelligence system.

Genius’ centralised database and intelligence system will be critical in supporting investigations, enabling the partnership to proactively analyse and identify potential risk areas.

Commenting on this renewed partnership, Eva Immerheiser, Integrity Officer at the DFB, affirmed the significance of collaborating with professional service providers to ensure the integrity of competition in football.

Immerheiser stated: “In the continuation of the cooperation with Genius as well as the intelligence upgrade with Clue, we see the opportunity to detect possible illicit patterns faster and to be able to intervene at an early stage. We look forward to working with Genius on a new level.”

Backing DFB’s commitment, Simon Martyn, Director of Rights Enforcement & Integrity at Genius Sports, highlighted the importance of vigilance and product enhancement to protect stakeholders from match-fixing and betting-related corruption.

Martyn explained: “By expanding our cooperation with the DFB, we will provide rich intelligence, analysis and visibility to help protect one of the world’s largest and most prestigious football associations.”
