#EUSportIntegrityDay held on 15 April every year is showing our commitment to tackle match fixing in sport.
Match-fixing is widely regarded as one of the major threats to sport. It undermines the values of sport such as integrity, fair play, respect for others and have a negative impact on the life of people involved in sport.
Tackling match-fixing requires strong and organised cooperation between the different stakeholders (sports organisations, police, governments, supporters, NGO’s, coaches, athletes themselves and others).
If this issue is not properly addressed, organized sport will lose its credibility and support from fans.
This is why #EUSportIntegrityDay is open to everyone who is committed to fighting match fixing. It is designed to:
- raise awareness amongst stakeholder and everyone who loves sport
- re-inforce the key education messages about sports betting integrity
- showcase the good practice in the fight against match fixing
- demonstrate a public commitment to prevent match fixing harming our sports
