NASCAR Recruits Sportradar for Sports Betting Fraud Detection, Prevention Services
NASCAR has shown a strong commitment to protecting the integrity of their sport by announcing a multi-year partnership with Sportradar’s Integrity Services.
As part of the agreement, Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System (FDS) will monitor domestic and global betting activity for signs of nefarious activity for all races across NASCAR’s three largest events: Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Sportradar’s FDS is currently used by over 75 sports bodies around the world – including the NBA, NHL, MLS, FIFA, and MotoGP.
NASCAR will also benefit from Sportradar’s Education and Prevention Services. This will include on-site workshops for NASCAR drivers, teams, officials and associated stakeholders delivered by Sportradar’s integrity and educational experts. In addition, Sportradar’s Integrity Services will also help NASCAR develop a fully-fledged betting integrity program, including robust betting-related rules and policies.
“We are honored and excited to partner with NASCAR in what is an important time for US sports following the Supreme Court sports betting case decision earlier this year,” says Andy Cunningham, Director, Global Strategy of Integrity Services, Sportradar. “We look forward to supporting NASCAR in installing a best-in-class integrity framework to protect their sport and its constituents.”
“It is critical to be proactive in developing safeguards that protect NASCAR’s on-track product from any potential integrity threats,” says Brian Herbst, VP, Global Media Strategy and Distribution, NASCAR. “Sportradar is the leader in this space and knowing that our races will be monitored extensively, while also equipping our industry with the tools and knowledge they require, gives us peace of mind in being able to preserve the integrity of NASCAR as the US wagering market continues to open.”
