Sports data and integrity solutions provider Genius Sports has been selected as the global integrity partner of the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV).
Genius Sports’ Integrity Services will work with the professional volleyball association to launch a comprehensive integrity and official data strategy to combat match-fixing and data piracy.
Genius Sports’ Bet Monitoring System will provide betting intelligence, detailed reports and analysis of global betting markets on all CBV competitions, with the agreement also seeing Genius Sports provide its Data Volley and VideoCheck scouting and review systems.
Data Volley enables coaches to analyse every play, combination and skill with in-depth performance data, while VideoCheck utilises 17 high-speed cameras to detect all major fouls and faults, ensuring the accuracy of every referee decision.
“We sought a new partner who’d be aware of the importance of protecting us from the threats of match-fixing,” said CBV executive director Radamés Lattari. “And that’s not all. With Genius Sports, we will be enhancing our digital framework by improving the use of statistics while also deploying the challenge system more regularly. We are very pleased.”
Genius Sports managing director Steven Burton commented: “This wide-ranging partnership with the CBV is another major milestone for Genius Sports in one of the largest sports markets in the world.
"Our integrity, data and video solutions are trusted by leagues and federations at all levels of world sport and we look forward to delivering their combined value to one of the premier organisations in volleyball.”
