Sports data and integrity solutions provider Sportradar will continue to monitor and safeguard the integrity of events governed by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) under a new multi-year agreement.
The new partnership sees Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System (FDS) used to monitor all FIA competitions, including the prestigious Formula One World Championship, with the FIA also utilising Sportradar’s Education and Prevention Services to help further safeguard their competitions.
“Safeguarding the integrity of motor sport worldwide is of paramount importance. By utilising Sportradar’s monitoring solutions, we continue to have oversight of any threats to our competitions,” said Pierre Ketterer, FIA head of governance, integrity and regulatory affairs.
“With the addition of their Education and Prevention Services too, our efforts within this space are further strengthened. Through the tailored education workshops, our participants will learn about the risk factors to be aware of and best practices to follow. By adopting this multi-faceted approach to integrity, we are confident that our competitions will continue to be run with ethical values at the forefront.”
Sportradar Integrity Services managing director Andreas Krannich commented: “We are honoured to be working alongside FIA. As the global leader in sporting integrity, we make it our top priority to support our partners and help establish an effective framework to help minimise integrity related issues.
“Our team will focus on safeguarding FIA competitions against integrity related threats through education, and will be driven by our market-leading FDS solution on race days. We look forward to working more closely with FIA in the years to come and continuing to play a part in upholding the integrity of some of the world’s best-loved motor sports championships.”
