Sportradar signs two-year contract with Basketball Australia

Basketball Australia and Sportradar’s integrity service have signed a contract to monitor the country’s basketball competitions for the next two years.

As part of this agreement, the company will use its considerable 16-year experience and knowledge to provide betting monitoring and reporting through its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) for over 150 games, including the National Women’s Basketball League (WNBL) and the Australian Under-20 Championship.

The UFDS is an advanced and proven betting monitoring system that has been independently evaluated and verified by recognized experts in the field of sports betting and integrity.

A global team of qualified experts provide analysis of irregular betting patterns on any suspicious games. These data are promptly reported to partners, providing oversight against manipulation of results in a global setting.

We look forward to supporting your integrity program for the next two years.”
