Sportradar and the International Golf Federation (IGF) have announced a multi-year collaboration.
The company’s Integrity Services division will provide the IGF with bet monitoring capabilities in order to combat fraud, match fixing, and other integrity threats.
Sportradar will make its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) available for several IGF competitions for the first two years of their agreement.

These will include the Espirito Santo Trophy in 2022 and 2023, as well as the Eisenhower Trophy, which begins tomorrow in France.

“The International Golf Federation is fully committed to the fight against the integrity threats facing our sport,” said Antony Scanlon, Executive Director of the IGF. “By partnering with Sportradar Integrity Services, we are putting ourselves in the best position to keep our competitions free of such concerns.”

“The UFDS bet monitoring solution will provide critical oversight of the global betting market, and their integrity specialists will be on hand to alert us to any irregularities that may arise.”

Meanwhile, Andreas Krannich, Managing Director of Sportradar Integrity Services, stated, “In recent years, we have seen an increase in match-fixing issues, with a wider range of sports targeted as part of this.”

“As a result, Sportradar Integrity Services is thrilled to be collaborating with the International Golf Federation.”

“Golf has a global audience, and we look forward to assisting in the protection of International Golf Federation competitions from all integrity-related risks in the coming years.”

Sportradar and the Saudi Arabian Football Federation collaborated earlier this month on an integrity mobile app (SAFF).
