The US-based company, which provides B2B services across the burgeoning U.S. market covering NFL, MLB, NBA, college football and basketball events, reinforces IBIA’s growing foothold across the North American region. Simplebet joins over 45 companies and 125 leading sports betting brands in IBIA, which account for over $137bn in global betting handle per annum and nearly 50% of all regulated commercial betting activity. The company strengthens IBIA’s position as the leading global sports betting integrity monitoring body.

Simplebet brings a distinctive approach and product range that marries well with our existing members and continues IBIA’s expansion across the growing U.S. regulated sports betting market. The association looks forward to working closely with Simplebet to ensure the integrity of its products and services.”
