Sportradar Integrity Services will monitor all matches using the Fraud Detection System (FDS) that identifies betting-related manipulation in sport. The company will also provide the Hero ISL with access to its specialist Intelligence & Investigation Services (I&I).

S

portradar and India’s premier soccer league, the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL), have signed a multi-year renewal of their integrity partnership, present since 2016.

As per the agreement with Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL), organizers of the Hero ISL, Sportradar Integrity Services will monitor all matches using the Fraud Detection System (FDS) that identifies betting-related manipulation in sport. This is possible due to the FDS’s algorithms, constantly maintained database of data and expert analysts which are leveraged to detect match-fixing. Sportradar will also provide the Hero ISL with access, as needed, to its specialist Intelligence & Investigation Services (I&I).

Sportradar Integrity Services’ Managing Director Andreas Krannich commented: “Hero ISL renewing its partnership with us only shows how committed they are towards maintaining integrity in the game and proactive towards the growth of football in the subcontinent. As a global leader in sporting integrity, we want to continue to provide our expertise and help protect the tournament against all integrity-related issues.”

Sportradar is currently providing integrity services to some of the world’s biggest leagues and federations, including FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC). In India, over the years, besides the Hero ISL, it has also supported the Pro Kabaddi League and recently announced an integrity partnership with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The seventh edition of Hero ISL 2020-21 season started on 20 November 2020 in Goa.
