Sportradar releases video on the potential impact of sports betting on athletes

Sportradar announced the launch of a free educational video on athlete well-being, available to its Integrity Services league and government agency partners.

The documentary-style video details how legal sports betting can affect athletes’ mental health. It also reflects Sportradar’s commitment to providing solutions and supporting stakeholders in the growing sports betting ecosystem.

In addition to Athlete Wellbeing program partners who are experts in the fields of mental health and responsible gaming, the video also features former professional soccer player and two-time gold medalist Lindsay Tarpley Snow, professional baseball player Garrett Whitlock and current college basketball player Connor McCaffery sharing his stories and perspectives on the subject.

Sportradar’s athlete wellness program provides resources and support to help partners educate their athletes about any potential harm associated with sports betting and sheds light on the potential impact of sports betting on athletes.

Leagues and governing bodies that subscribe to Sportradar’s athlete wellness program will be able to provide their athletes with an enhanced appreciation of the potential impact of sports betting on their mental health, greater awareness of the signs and how to process what they may be feeling, and also a better understanding of the resources that are available to help them, among others.

Athlete welfare is part of Sportradar Integrity Services’ overall strategy to protect the integrity of sporting competitions through monitoring, investigation and education.
