German Football Association appoints Genius Sports to lead integrity programme

The German Football Association (DFB) has selected Genius Sports to launch a new integrity programme to combat match fixing and betting-related corruption.

The decision follows a competitive tender process.

The programme, which starts in the upcoming season, will monitor over 7,500 games a year to provide visibility across global betting on all Bundesliga, 2 Bundesliga, German internationals, and women’s and youth team fixtures. By analysing global odds movements with predictive algorithms, the technology will identify potentially suspicious betting activity in real-time.

This will give the DFB integrity team access to detailed reports on individual games and analysis of global betting markets. Together with key information from third-party sources and bookmakers the data will support any integrity investigations.
