Germany To Use Bet Warning System

The German Soccer Federation (DFB) and German Soccer League (DFL) signed a rolling contract with security company 'Betradar' on Thursday to monitor betting in German soccer. "The DFL and DFB have reached an agreement with Betradar and will work alongside bookmakers in the future," Wilfried Straub, business leader of DFL, told German newspaper Die Welt. Betradar has over a 100 betting offices under its wing and uses extensive contacts to report on strange betting patterns and German soccer authorities hope using their expertise will prevent a repeat of the Robert Hoyzer scandal. German referee Hoyzer, 25, worked in collaboration with the Croatian mafia to help fix matches for financial gain and his revelations have cast a dark cloud over German football ahead of the 2006 World Cup on home soil.
