FIFA to Discuss Integrity at Betting on Sports Europe - Digital

The virtual event on October 21-22 will bring together senior executives from the European sports betting industry to share knowledge and ideas about the key issues influencing the future of the sector and discuss the main news about the betting market.

Bovolenta will take part in the “Protecting the Beautiful Game” session, which will open proceedings on the second day and see him outline the role FIFA plays in policing football and protecting it from outside influences.

He will detail the best means to protect competitions from manipulation, what FIFA is doing to promote integrity and to educate players, clubs, and officials about the importance of ethical behavior in football.

Bovolenta said: “Maintaining the integrity of football is crucial to the success and credibility of the sport, as well as to the enjoyment of players and fans around the world. An important part of FIFA’s role in governing the world’s most popular sport is to share best practice on integrity. As a result, I’m looking forward to taking part in Betting on Sports Europe - Digital and using the opportunity to tell the audience about our work to combat match manipulation. The event will provide a great platform to engage with senior executives from Europe’s sports betting industry, and to explain how FIFA is working with local, national and international stakeholders to protect the integrity of football and to deliver education programs that promote ethical behavior.”

The Sports Integrity track, one of eight taking place during Betting on Sports Europe - Digital, also features sessions examining which markets sportsbooks should consider too vulnerable to accept bets on, the relationship between problem gambling and match-fixing, improving the integrity of data collection, and the impact of the Independent Review Panel on tennis.

Speakers include senior executives and integrity specialists from sports betting operators, data suppliers, sports governing bodies, players’ associations, and gambling education organizations.
