GlobalSportsJobs’ partner Sportradar breaking new ground
Published: 13 May 2015
GlobalSportsJobs’ partner Sportradar have been setting the pace in the sports industry through the use of innovative and ground-breaking technologies.
In March, Sportradar were presented with the “Best Technology in a Single Sport” award at the Sports Technology Awards 2015 for their fraud detection system. These awards were launched back in 2014 as a way of recognising and celebrating the important role that technology plays in sport today.
Only a month later, Sportradar have been awarded yet another accolade, picking up the gong in the “Cutting Edge Sport” category at the BT Sport Industry Awards 2015. This is a brand new category at the awards that recognises the most innovative, technological and pioneering contributions to modern sport worldwide.
Speaking on behalf of Sportradar following the award, their Managing Director for Integrity and Strategy, Andreas Krannich said: “Coming just a few weeks after the Sports Technology Awards victory, these two accolades mean a great deal to us. They show us that the sport industry at large is not only grasping how important the threat of match-fixing is, but understanding that we have invested a great deal of time and resources into developing a system and service that really addresses this issue. We are truly grateful for this recognition and we want to take this opportunity to thank our partners, clients and friends for their commitment, trust and collaboration. The credibility of our Security Services and our Fraud Detection System are in no small way supported by the credibility of those we work with and those who trust us. We look forward to another decade of innovation and we remain focused on working together with all existing and new partners to keep the sport we all love exciting, engaging and of course honest.”
