The Football Association of Moldova has announced it has, for the past several months, been working with Stats Perform to combat match-fixing and corruption in football.
The parties have been working together as part of a two-year agreement which covers all games in the top division of Moldova, the Divizia Națională.
Earlier this year, Stats Perform said it was enhancing the monitoring and detection of suspicious activity in sport with its performing integrity analysis.
Most recently, the company was made the exclusive and official partner of WTA tennis, becoming the competition’s data supplier.
Head of FMF Integrity Department, Eugen Zubic, said: “Football is the most loved and practised game in the world and our mission is to protect this sport from any threat.
“That is why it is crucial for FMF to use the services of Stats Perform, one of the biggest international and expert companies in betting and performance analysis, in the form of reports that are extremely necessary in the match-fixing disciplinary investigation phase.
“Only together, the whole football community can stop the corruption in football by informing, raising awareness and condemning match-fixing.”
Jake Marsh, Global Head of Integrity at Stats Perform, added: “We are delighted FMF have chosen Stats Perform’s unique integration of betting markets monitoring, intelligence and Opta-powered performance analysis to support their integrity programme.
“This agreement shows the importance FMF place in ensuring the integrity of their competitions, and we look forward to working with them in a successful partnership.”
