A report from Sportradar Integrity Services has revealed that the company identified 1,212 suspicious matches in 2022, an increase of 307 matches from 2021. The total number of suspicious matches recorded in 2021 was 903 – a record for Sportradar at the time.
This was reported in Sportradar’s second annual Betting Corruption and Match-fixing report. The sports were monitored by its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS).
Although the number of suspicious matches rose, the report stated that over 99.5% of sports events have no instances of match-fixing, and no one sport had a suspicious match radio of over 1%.
Football was once again the sport with the highest rate of suspicious matches, coming in at 775 for 2022 – 64% of the total.
