The International Association of Gaming Advisors (IAGA), Gambling Regulators European Forum (GREF) and International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Movement Unit on the Prevention of the Manipulation of Competitions (OM Unit PMC) have completed an informative workshop on critical issues surrounding the manipulation of sports competitions.

Featuring experts from the IOC, the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions (Macolin Convention), INTERPOL, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and the UK Gambling Commission, the workshop explored how the various sports organisations and betting stakeholders, notably regulators, can work together to protect international sporting events and gambling integrity.

Kirsten Clark, IAGA Executive Director, says: “With numerous major sporting events occurring in Europe in 2024, sports betting integrity, match-fixing, gambling advertising and sponsorship, and ethics and regulatory compliance are critical priorities for sporting event organisers and the gambling industry.

“Regulated sports wagering continues to be a popular gambling option in jurisdictions around the world and ensuring that all stakeholders work together to ensure match integrity Is an ongoing priority for the industry. We are pleased to have been able to bring together such an esteemed group of experts to discuss the issue and look forward to continuing the dialogue later this year at our annual International Gaming Summit to be held in Washington, DC.”

The 2024 International Gaming Summit will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Washington, DC, over May 27th to 30th. Watch www.theiaga.org for full details.
