Euroleague Basketball, the organizer of top European club competitions, has announced a partnership with Sportradar, the sports technology company, to protect its competitions in the next two years.

As a result of the deal, Sportradar Integrity Services will deploy measures to ensure integrity protections are in place for the EuroLeague, EuroCup, under-18 competition, and the Euroleague Basketball Next Generation Tournament.

Sportradar will assess and monitor betting patterns on matches from the Euroleague’s three premier competitions using its AI-powered Universal Fraud Detection System.

Sportradar will also be providing anti-match-fixing educational support to stakeholders using both in-person and online workshops.

Ibrahim Erkan, Euroleague Basketball's sports director, said: “Euroleague Basketball is fully committed to guarantee that all games are disputed under an unquestionable Fair Play environment, practicing a zero-tolerance policy for any inadequate behavior.

“Sportradar Integrity Services' vast knowledge in the field of sports integrity is an invaluable control tool to reinforce the monitoring protocol deployed in our competitions to guarantee that they fulfill the most strict moral and ethical principles and values such as honesty, honor, dependability, and trustworthiness.”

Andreas Krannich, Sportradar Integrity Services executive vice president, added: “At Sportradar we have witnessed growing integrity issues across global basketball in recent years, so it is vitally important that such a significant player in global basketball has acted by opting to utilize our robust and varied integrity solutions.”
