The Victorian Racing Integrity Commissioner and Sportradar have signed the Cooperation and Information Exchange MoU earlier this week, to strength sports integrity efforts.
The Racing Integrity Commissioner Sal Perna and the Sportradar’s Managing Director of Security Services Andreas Krannich signed the MoU.
“This agreement, strengthens cooperation between my office and Sportradar, particularly with respect to information exchange, to assist sports’ controlling bodies to achieve their objectives in reducing the threat presented by criminal and corrupt conduct in Australian sport, particularly in the Victorian Racing Industry (VRI)” Mr Perna said.
“The MOU not only helps both agencies gather and share relevant information, but leads to increasing the public confidence in racing.”
The partnership underlines efforts to ensure the integrity of Victoria’s $2.8 billion (US$2.1 billion) racing industry, which employs approximately 60,000 people.
“The MOU formalises the already existing cooperation between Sportradar and the Racing Integrity Commissioner and solidifies the strong ties between the two agencies. The Office of the Racing Integrity Commissioner is one of the key sporting integrity units operating in Australia and our Security Services team look forward to working with them even more closely, utilising our integrity related wagering analysis, intelligence gathering and training experience to assist in upholding the integrity of all three codes of racing operating across Victoria. ” Mr Krannich said.
