FIA extends integrity partnership with Sportradar
The FIA, motor racing’s international governing body, has extended its multi-year partnership deal with Sportradar, the international sports data and digital content firm, to continue to monitor and safeguard the integrity of its championships.
Under the renewed agreement, all FIA competitions, including the flagship Formula One World Championship, will continue to be monitored by Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System.
FIA will also have access to Sportradar’s education and prevention services to further safeguard its competitions.
In addition, Sportradar will conduct integrity workshops to educate participants on potential integrity threats and how they can promote correct and ethical behaviours within the sport. FIA and Sportradar are also set to launch a dedicated e-learning tool and associated webpage platform.
Pierre Ketterer, FIA head of governance, integrity and regulatory affairs, said: "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. 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.”
This is the third integrity partnership Sportradar has renewed this month after signing extensions with Germany’s top-tier Handball Bundesliga and the Rugby Football League, the governing body for rugby league in England.
Sportradar provides integrity, data and streaming services for various federations and leagues worldwide, including Fifa, Uefa, NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB and Nascar.
