FIFA subsidiary announces Perform link to tackle match manipulation

FIFA subsidiary Early Warning System GmbH (EWS) has announced a new cooperation agreement with Perform Group with a view to enhancing the integrity of football matches.

The partnership will see Perform’s Opta brand integrate their historical and live performance data into the EWS integrity monitoring system.

The link will help to detect suspicious betting activity and assist in spotting match manipulation in football, including FIFA competitions.

“This cooperation with a leading sports data service provider is a perfect fit for our monitoring approach to ensure an effective and fact-based match analysis,” FIFA’s director of security, Ralf Mutschke said.

“Perform is a very strong partner in the global fight against match manipulation, and such cooperation represents a fundamental keystone of our overall strategy.”

Perform’s director of integrity and security, Matthew Drew, added: “Perform fully supports EWS and its commitment to monitor and respond to the threat of match manipulation.

“We are delighted that Perform digital content can so readily be used in partnership with rights holders in order to strengthen the integrity of competitions.

“We look forward to cooperating with EWS for the benefit of FIFA competitions and those of its associations and confederations for a long time to come.”

Opta is the leading global supplier of performance data for professional clubs and world broadcasters.
