Sportradar, the international sports data intelligence and digital content service provider, has extended its partnership with the International Tennis Federation for a further three years.
The deal will see Sportradar remain the official data partner to the ITF and build upon a relationship that began in 2012.
As part of the partnership, the ITF will “continue to invest significantly into accreditation, control systems and personnel to safeguard the integrity of tour events, leading the tennis world in efforts to ensure a secure player and fan experience.”
The ITF will also utilise the universal fraud detection system, the bet monitoring service of Sportradar’s integrity service.
In addition, Sportradar will offer fans an enhanced digital experience, with new websites, apps and products.
Carsten Koerl, chief executive of Sportradar, said: “Sportradar is the world leader in helping leagues and federations across the globe maximize the value of their data whilst ensuring the integrity of sport.
