The National Hockey League (NHL) adds integrity component to its partnership with Sportradar

Press Release

23 August 2016 – The National Hockey League today announced it will incorporate Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System (FDS) into its game-integrity protection systems.

The NHL, which for years has used a variety of security agencies to proactively safeguard and ensure the integrity of its competition, now also will use Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System to monitor global gaming activity and trends across more than 550 operators worldwide in order to pinpoint unusual patterns that could be cause for concern.

Sportradar, a world leader in the detection and prevention of game manipulation and partner to federations, leagues and law enforcement agencies across the globe, will use its Fraud Detection System to monitor all regular-season and postseason NHL games for any potential manipulation.

While we have the utmost confidence in the integrity of our sports and our games, Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System provides an additional layer of security and protection,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said.

Sportradar’s Managing Director, Integrity Services, Andreas Krannich added: “Our award-winning FDS monitors over 100,000 matches across 12 sports around the world each year and we are delighted the NHL has chosen this system, that oversees all relevant operators and markets, to bolster its integrity defenses.

The use of Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System is an addition to the League’s retention of Sportradar, prior to the 2015-16 season, as the exclusive third-party provider of its real-time game data.
