The standards are a “living document” that the Association intends to continually assess and update in response to real-world changes.

Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, commented: “We are excited to recognize Sportradar as our latest recipient of the ‘Kitemark Data Standards.’ the highest levels of transparency and accuracy”.
