Support will begin from Lausitzring onwards to cover second half of the season
Dorna WSBK Organization are delighted to announce they will have the ongoing support of Sportradar from August onwards, as the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship is set to be supported by Sportradar Integrity Services, as the series continues to expand and attract different areas in the world of sport.
Sportradar’s goal is to increase the awareness of many of sports stakeholders in the threat of gambling and match fixing in sport. Following in MotoGP’s™ footsteps, the World Superbike Championship will gain the expertise from the leader in understanding and leveraging the power of sports data and content. Offering their services as they monitor and study WorldSBK races, they will help broaden the reach of WorldSBK and the series all-round understanding of sport. On top of this, they held their first workshop at the Prosecco DOC German Round.
Danny Sears, Head of Education for Integrity Services is thrilled to be working alongside WorldSBK: “It’s fantastic for us to be working with Dorna, especially working with big names in the motorsport world such as WorldSBK and MotoGP, we are excited to be partnered up with the series. Any sport can have this problem, and it’s happening all over the world so from our perspective it’s great that the series is being really proactive about it. It’s reassuring from our side to know there is nothing really concerning in the sport, but it can happen at any time, and in any sport as the betting market is getting bigger and bigger. Now it the best time to have these workshops and hopefully the riders are able to take something away and learn from the workshops. It’s a really positive way for the series to look at such a big issue.”
Daniel Carrera, WorldSBK Executive Director: “We are thrilled as an organization to welcome a company such as Sportradar, and to work alongside them will bring an even more balanced outlook of our sport. Preventing a problem and being aware of a problem is key to strong management, and with this partnership we believe it will help to make the sport a greater one all round.”
