Sun Belt Conference Partners with ProhiBet for Sports Wagering Monitoring and Regulatory Compliance Software
The Sun Belt Conference has partnered with U.S. Integrity and ProhiBet to enhance sports wagering monitoring efforts and provide educational resources to its student-athletes, coaches, staff and officials.
“The Sun Belt Conference is dedicated to safeguarding the integrity of competition across all of our sponsored sports,” said Sun Belt Conference Commissioner Keith Gill. “Our partnership with U.S. Integrity and ProhiBet underscores this commitment—particularly given the current landscape of sports wagering in our industry.”
This partnership will provide the Sun Belt Conference and its 14 member institutions access to U.S. Integrity’s monitoring software and resources. These resources include annual education for all student-athletes, coaches, staff and officials; weekly integrity monitoring across all sports; and access to the ProhiBet system—a fully-encrypted decentralized cross-monitoring and notification platform that is designed to safeguard sports integrity and ensure adherence to state-specific regulations. ProhiBet will play a pivotal role in preventing student-athletes, coaches, staff and officials from engaging in prohibited sports wagering.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Sun Belt Conference—the combination of ProhiBet’s state-of-the-art encrypted data transfer system and conference’s dedication to the integrity of sport will undoubtedly enhance the transparency and trustworthiness of sports wagering activities,” said 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 ProhiBet service—coupled with the monitoring and educational resources provided by U.S. Integrity—is part of a two-fold approach to solidify the conference’s oversight surrounding sports betting. This approach will also see the Sun Belt enhance its control over the dissemination of the conference’s data.
ProhiBet is a joint venture between U.S. Integrity and Odds On Compliance.
