DFB selects global leader in sports integrity, data and technology services

Following a competitive tender process, the German Football Association (DFB) has today selected Genius Sports to launch a new integrity programme that will monitor over 7,500 games a year to prevent match-fixing and betting-related corruption.

Beginning with the 2019/20 season, Genius Sports’ Bet Monitoring System will provide vital visibility across global betting on all Bundesliga, 2. Bundesliga, German internationals, women’s and youth team fixtures. By analysing global odds movements with predictive algorithms, this technology will automatically flag potentially suspicious betting activity in real-time.

The DFB integrity team will now benefit from unprecedented levels of betting intelligence, detailed reports on individual games and analysis of global betting markets that will provide key information from third-party sources and bookmakers to support any integrity investigations.

Hendrik Große Lefert, DFB Integrity Officer, said: “We look forward to working with Genius Sports as our new integrity service provider and hope to gain new impetus in the field of preventing betting-related corruption.”

Steven Burton, Managing Director at Genius Sports, said: “Being selected to safeguard the integrity and future of one of the largest football associations in the world is a huge honour for Genius Sports and is a testament to the quality of our services. Our monitoring technology, expertise in analysing real-time betting and global intelligence network will provide comprehensive protection for the DFB, ensuring their games remain transparent and unpredictable.”
