Swiss betting operator Sportradar has rubbished the claims of having a connection with Italian mafias and illegal online gambling operators.
The company was accused of having links to the Italian mafia in the local gambling market in a report published by Business Insider Italia.
Responding to the allegations Sportradar issued a statement and categorically denied the allegations.
The Business Insider Italia report alleged Sportradar and its subsidiary Betradar had links to Malta-based sports betting operators who offered illegal betting services in Italy.
However, denying the allegations the betting operator termed it baseless and said that they are operating in full compliance with the country’s gambling laws. It also said that they have no links or ties to any illegal online gambling operator in the country.
Sportradar has been marking its presence in the expanding US betting market after the Supreme Court legalized sports gambling last year.
Recently, Sportradar partnered with the NFL. Following the deal, Sportradar has rights of “exclusive distribution of NFL’s real-time official play-by-play data and NGS data to sports betting operators in the U.S. and internationally where sports betting is legal and regulated.”
The NFL will also use Sportradar’s comprehensive and award-winning integrity services to monitor betting across all NFL games (preseason, regular season, and postseason).
