Sports data supplier Sportradar will help protect the integrity of racing in Victoria after signing a new cooperation and information exchange agreement with the Australian state.

The agreement has been signed by Sportradar managing director of security services Andreas Krannich and Racing Integrity Commissioner Sal Perna.

The deal will help ensure the integrity of Victoria’s AUD$2.8bn racing industry, which employs approximately 60,000 people.

Perna said that the agreement strengthens cooperation between his office and Sportradar, particularly with respect to the exchange of information, to assist sports’ controlling bodies to successfully reduce the threat posed by criminal and corrupt conduct in Australian sports, particularly in the Victorian racing industry.

“The MOU not only helps both agencies gather and share relevant information, but leads to increasing the public confidence in racing,” he explained.

“The MOU formalises the already existing cooperation between Sportradar and the Racing Integrity Commissioner and solidifies the strong ties between the two agencies,” Krannich explained.

“The Office of the Racing Integrity Commissioner is one of the key sporting integrity units operating in Australia and our Security Services team look forward to working with them even more closely, utilising our integrity related wagering analysis, intelligence gathering and training experience to assist in upholding the integrity of all three codes of racing operating across Victoria,” he said.
