Swedish regulator pens integrity deal with Sportradar

Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has entered into a new partnership with the Sportradar Integrity Services arm of Sportradar.

Under the deal, Sportradar will monitor a range of sports and competitions in Sweden and flag any suspicions of match-fixing to Spelinspektionen.

The regulator will also have the opportunity to work with Sportradar on initiatives to assess the risk of manipulation in certain sports.

“Through the information we will receive via Sportradar, we increase our knowledge of match fixing that we can use in, among other things, our regulatory work,” Spelinspektionen investigator Daniel Frisö-Grön said.

“It also gives us opportunities to expand the exchange of information with sports and the police within the framework of our collaboration against match-fixing.”

Earlier this month, Sportradar published its annual integrity report, revealing that a record-breaking 903 suspicious matches had been flagged in 2021.
