The West Asian Football Federation (WAFF) has entered into a partnership with Sportradar to undertake a series of educational workshops to uphold and protect the integrity of regional competitions.

Sportradar Integrity Services’ Education & Prevention team will provide engaging educational material to help educate all the key stakeholders in WAFF competitions on key topics surrounding international sports betting, match-fixing and social media integrity.

“The West Asian Football Federation is committed to fighting match-fixing, and under this agreement we are demonstrating the importance we place on protecting the game in West Asia. We are excited to collaborate and work together with Sportradar to educate, spread awareness and protect the integrity of West Asian football,” Khalil Al Salem, General-secretary of WAFF, said.

“We are honoured to be starting this relationship with the WAFF, who are taking crucial proactive measures in the fight to prevent integrity issues. We hope this relationship will be a fruitful one where we can collaboratively work together to safeguard the integrity of football in the region and help the WAFF become a model for other federations in Asia and around the globe,” Andreas Krannich, Managing Director Integrity Services, Sportradar, said.
