Gathering regulators, policy-makers and legislators from around the world in attendance at the largest industry show, International Legislators’ Agenda aims to provide an exclusive environment to address the key regulatory challenges they face. The agenda of educational and networking sessions will span across the 6th, 7th and 9th of February to offer:
Monday, 6 February 2023, ExCel and SkyGarden
15.00 – 17.00: Match fixing: When the uncertain becomes certain - at the ICC Capital Suite Room 17 at ExCeL
Encouraged by recession fears, lingering pandemic concerns and other challenges, organised crime has found lower divisions of football, tennis, basketball and other sports, as a source of income. These criminals often involve an individual link - for example, a former player or coach - with active players, coaches or even executives of a club to ensure a certain outcome of a match to maximize a bet's financial return. As such, cooperation between law enforcement authorities, sports associations and the different gaming and betting stakeholders is essential to address this criminal enterprise that is causing enormous reputational damage to sports competition and legalized gambling and having a tremendous economic impact on the gaming industry.
This workshop, organised by the International Association of Gaming Advisors, will begin with a keynote address providing a broad overview of the issue, followed by a presentation on fraudulent player behavior. The session will conclude with an interactive panel discussion featuring representatives from the betting and gaming industry who will address a variety of topical issues and discuss what the global gaming industry can do to address the negative effects of match fixing.
Hosted by the International Association of Gaming Advisors (IAGA)
