Sportradar and the Austrian Federal Police collaborate on anti-doping initiatives
Sportradar Integrity Services is a division of Sportradar that has expanded the Memorandum of Understanding, (MoU), with the Austrian Federal Police to include anti-doping.
This agreement was reached with the Bundeskriminalamt of the Ministry of the Interior. The collaboration began in 2015. It has enabled Sportradar Integrity Services to share information and analysis related to the preservation of sport integrity.
Sportradar will provide its anti-doping solutions, technologies and network under the extended MoU. These services can be accessed by Sportradar, which will allow them to exchange information to help detect and prevent crimes against the Austrian Federal Anti-Doping Act.
Sportradar provides services to help sports organizations as well as antidoping groups. This includes the creation of testing plans, and identification and interception by trafficking networks.
Sportradar has signed a new agreement with the Austrian Police Force to provide information and support for investigations. This includes assistance for athletes, coaches, doctors, and anti-doping organizations, as well as third-party groups. It will offer anti-doping courses for the police force.
Andreas Holzer, Director of the Criminal Intelligence Service Austria, said: “For years, the Austrian Federal Criminal Police Office has played a pioneering role in integrity measures in sports.
“For this reason, the long-standing cooperation with Sportradar is now being extended to include cooperation in the fight against doping, in addition to match fixing.”
Dominic Mueser, Sportradar’s Global Head of Anti-Doping Services, added: “Through our use of technology and data-driven anti-doping, Sportradar’s Anti-Doping Services department has established itself as a credible and trusted operator in this space, making the extension of our partnership with the Austrian law enforcement authorities a natural next step in supporting them address doping in sport.
“Building on the existing strong relationship, we’re excited about the potential this partnership has to protect clean sport, and we look forward to continuing our work together.”
