The Badminton World Federation (BWF) have signed an integrity partnership with Genius Sports to protect their competitions against the threat of match-fixing.
Badminton hit the headlines when a match-fixing scandal occurred at the London 2012 Olympics, where two sets of players tried to lose a match on purpose in order to draw supposedly easier opponents in the next round.
Additionally, a match-fixing attempt was thwarted at the BWF New Zealand Open last year.
The new agreement will see technology company Genius Sports, who already have partnerships with Major League Baseball, the PGA Tour and the English Premier League, provide the BWF with a state-of-the-art bet-monitoring system, which compares odds movements and global betting markets using algorithms to battle match-fixing.
The technology will help monitor all elite badminton competitions including the BWF World Championships, the Sudirman Cup and the BWF World Tour.
Commenting on the deal, BWF President Poul-Erik Høyer said: "The integrity of our sport is of utmost importance to BWF and we are pleased to join forces with Genius Sports to strengthen our campaign to keep badminton clean.
"Genius Sports has gained a sterling reputation in providing world-class bet-monitoring services and we welcome their expertise.
"This partnership will help to protect our tournaments from match-fixing and betting-related corruption."
Ben Paterson, the integrity operations director at Genius Sports, added: "Effectively combating match-fixing demands that sports are proactive.
"The BWF has shown an exemplary commitment to prioritising the integrity of its competitions and we are delighted to have formed this long-term partnership, using our market-leading technology to provide round-the-clock protection."
The latest BWF Masters tournament on the calendar is taking place in Indonesia this week.
