Sportradar’s Integrity Services unit has entered into a bet monitoring agreement with the European Table Tennis Union (ETTU), the governing body of table tennis in Europe.

Sportradar will monitor key events, including matches in the European Championships, as well the as the men’s and women’s Champions League.

This will be done through Sportradar’s Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS), its in-house bet monitoring system.

The UFDS is already active, having monitored the 2022 European Championships in Munich last month.

Through the system, a global team of integrity professionals will analyse the betting patterns of matches for abnormalities, allowing for suspicious activity to be flagged for further investigation.

“Protecting the integrity of European Table Tennis is a top priority, so it is vital that there are robust measures in place in to safeguard our competitions from match-fixing,” said European Table Tennis Union acting president Pedro Moura. “Through this partnership, men’s, women’s and youth events are all now being monitored through the UFDS.”

“Sportradar has a proven track record in the sports integrity industry, and their expert bet monitoring capabilities will play a crucial role in helping to protect the integrity of European Table Tennis events.”

Sportradar’s Integrity Services unit has detected over 7,500 suspicious matches during the past 17 years, with more than 800 taking place just in 2022. This compares with the 903 that the unit detected during 2021.

“We have witnessed ever-growing integrity threats over the years, particularly due to recent global events, as well as an increased betting interest in sports such as table tennis and are excited to have entered into this partnership with the European Table Tennis Union,” said Sportradar Integrity Services managing director Andreas Krannich.

“At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our sporting partners’ efforts to detect and prevent such threats and look forward to supporting the integrity programme of the European Table Tennis Union in the years ahead.”

Earlier this month, Sportradar signed a similar integrity partnership with the Finnish centre for integrity.
