Following a string of recent key partnerships, Sportradar has been selected by the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association for a three year servicing deal.
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]portradar, the sports data and digital content analyst, has confirmed a new partnership with the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA).
The deal will see Sportradar providing integrity-focused services to the global snooker and billiards governing body over the next three years.
Across the next three years, the WPBSA will benefit from Sportradar’s award-winning Fraud Detection System across snooker’s thousands of matches each year, as well as intelligence and investigatory support as required.
Fans and stakeholders of the WPBSA should feel reassured that they have such a committed and forward-looking team protecting these two sports.
Speaking about this new partnership, WPBSA Vice Chairman, Nigel Mawer QPM said: “We have had the chance to work with Sportradar over the last few years so we were delighted we could convert that experience into a stronger and closer relationship. Sportradar continue to develop new services and improve the sharpness of their existing products, which means that this partnership should enable us to preserve the most robust defences against those who would look to undermine our sport.”
In addition to its integrity services, Sportradar will also roll out an annual Education Workshop to WPBSA stakeholders as part of the partnership.
Sportradar’s Managing Director Integrity Services, Andreas Krannich, said: “We have really enjoyed working closely with snookers world governing body. Fans and stakeholders of the WPBSA should feel reassured that they have such a committed and forward-looking team protecting these two sports. This development is really encouraging and we look forward to doing our bit to ensure snooker remains an exciting, world class sport.”
