Big 12 Conference partners with US Integrity
23 August 2023
(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Big 12 Conference and U.S. Integrity today announced a partnership that will provide the Conference with monitoring software and tools that will play a pivotal role in preventing student-athletes, coaches, and staff from engaging in prohibited sports wagering.
This partnership will also see Big 12 officials and each Big 12 institution provided access to U.S. Integrity’s monitoring software and resources. These resources include annual onsite training for all student-athletes, coaches, staff, and officials, weekly integrity monitoring across all sports, and access to the Prohibet system.
“The Big 12 Conference is thrilled to partner with U.S. Integrity as a continuation of its commitment to sports betting compliance,” said Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark. “Given the current landscape of sports betting in our industry, it’s more important than ever to double-down on ensuring sport integrity across our Conference.”
Through their partnership with U.S. Integrity, the Conference will be provided access to ProhiBet, a technology that provides a secure and transparent method for sports properties and sportsbook operators to ensure that student-athletes, coaches, and administrative staff remain compliant with the intricate web of state regulations that govern sports betting activities.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Big12 -- the combination of ProhiBet's state-of-the-art encrypted data transfer system and the Big 12’s dedication to upholding the integrity of sports will undoubtedly enhance the transparency and trustworthiness of collegiate sports betting activities,” stated Matt Heap, Managing Director of ProhiBet. Heap brings a wealth of experience in the field as the former head of the Colorado Division of Gaming’s sportsbook operations.
The Big 12’s partnership with U.S. Integrity and ProhiBet is part of a two-fold approach to solidify the Conference’s oversight surrounding sports betting. This approach will also see the Big 12 strengthen its control over the dissemination of the Conference’s data.
