DerbyWheel (DW), a new global Professional Keirin concept, has announced a three-year partnership with a leading sports technology company, Sportradar, for integrity services to help safeguard their competitions.
Officially hitting the boards for its inaugural season in 2024, DerbyWheel will bring the thrilling sport of Keirin racing to a global audience, having previously been a closed domestic enterprise in Japan and Korea.
In its homeland of Japan, the Keirin is all about sports betting, being one of only five sports that it’s legal to bet on and operates as a successful sports betting business. The DerbyWheel business model will focus on content distribution to provide a live feed and data to licensors for the purposes of sports betting supported by other commercial revenue from DW events.
Sportradar will assist DerbyWheel on the sports integrity side of the event, looking to ensure the highest levels of fair play and protect DerbyWheel from threats such as match-fixing, doping and other fraud. With deep industry relationships and expertise, Sportradar will provide bet monitoring through their team of experts using the company’s proven Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS). Sportradar will also provide intelligence and investigation, integrity auditing and education & prevention services for DerbyWheel professional riders.
James Pope, CEO of DerbyWheel, said: “Sportradar has the credentials at operating the best-in-class range of solutions for sports, media and betting industries and so we are incredibly proud to be partnering with them. Operating at a gold standard level from the get-go is of huge importance to us. Our partnership with Sportradar shows our commitment to integrity and ensuring DerbyWheel events will deliver high quality sport at the pinnacle of fair play.”
Sportradar’s EVP Integrity Services, Andreas Krannich, said: “As the new global Keirin Racing event, Derby Wheel sets high standards from the outset and shows that they are firmly dedicated to providing clean and fair sport to its fans. The formation of this partnership puts robust measures in place to mitigate any integrity threats that may arise. At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our partner’s integrity operations and look forward to supporting DerbyWheel over the coming years.”

In recent news, six people, including cops were arrested after the Ranchi Police busted an illegal gambling den in the Gonda area of Jharkhand’s capital. Acting on the received information, a police team raided the spot. Reportedly, a sum of five lakh rupees was seized from the accused.
BJP State President Babulal Marandi raised his concern over the incident, emphasising on the involvement of police personnel stationed at CM Hemant Soren’s residence in the gambling operation. Marandi suggested that there might be pressure on the police, leading to potential manipulation of the case.
He even took to his official handle on X (formerly Twitter), to express his worries over the state’s leadership being involved in wrongdoings. He also questioned where the money earned from the gambling activities was going.
The station in-charge Ravi Thakur confirmed the arrests. A detailed investigation into the matter is underway. The illegal gambling activities were reportedly ongoing in the police like area for several days. Upon receiving the information about the illegal gambling den, Ranchi SSP formed the team who conducted the raid.
Genting Berhad Reports Group Revenue of $1.57 Billion for Q3 2023
Genting Berhad has posted its financial report for the third quarter of 2023, highlighting a 20.39% increase year-on-year in its group revenue to RM7.37bn ($1.57bn).
This improved performance in the group’s revenue was contributed mainly by the Leisure & Hospitality Division continuing to recover.
There was a significant increase in the group’s net profit from the previous year’s third quarter results, seeing them go up 177.16% to RM995m.
EBITDA also saw an increase, going up from RM2.06bn in the third quarter of 2022 to RM2.73bn in the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of nearly 33%.
Resorts World Sentosa continued to benefit from the sustained recovery of travel and tourism within the region, seeing both revenue and EBITDA increase, while Resorts World Genting recorded higher revenue this quarter due to a higher volume of business registered by its gaming and non-gaming segments; owing to the relaxation of border control as compared to Q3 2022.
Genting mentions that its financial performance for the rest of the 2023 financial year may be impacted by a number of factors, including the continuation of domestic demand employment growth; and the regional gaming market is expected to continue its recovery as airline capacity and air connectivity in the region improves.
The report also mentions that Resorts World Sentosa has collaborated with a local charity organisation called Food from the Heart to fund, to enable the distribution of fresh, locally sourced produce to 2400 underprivileged families across the island over the next three years.
