ESSA launch new anti-fixing campaign

A group comprising some of the European market’s largest online betting operators has launched a new campaign to stamp out match-fixing.

On Wednesday, the European Sports Security Association (ESSA) announced a new campaign to “Kick Crime Out of Sport.” Secretary general Khalid Ali said the 18-month project marked the latest plank in ESSA stakeholders’ efforts to reduce the capacity of criminal elements to negatively impact sports integrity.

The project will see ESSA members, which include over a dozen prominent UK and European betting operators, teaming with global police INTERPOL, the International Olympic Committee and regulatory authorities in England and France to raise awareness of criminals’ efforts to tamper with sporting events for personal profit.

Specifically, the campaign will include developing a Handbook on Good Practices for both operators and governments, helping to craft legislation and regulations so that authorities have the capacity to deal with fixers and developing proper networks for the collection and dissemination of fixing information.
