Greek licensed operator Stoiximan has become the latest member of European sports betting integrity unit ESSA.
Stoiximan becomes the 21st industry member to join the integrity unit, and will contribute to ESSA’s global alert and sports betting fraud detection system.
ESSA governance welcomed the inclusion of Stoiximan one of the highest coverage betting operators in the Greek and Romanian markets.
The operator is the main shirt sponsor of Greek champions Olympiacos FC, of the Greek national volleyball and water polo teams and other sports clubs. They also support several athletes who are members of the Greek Rio 2016 Olympic Games Team and are sponsors of the International Olympic Academy (IOA).
Khalid Ali, ESSA Secretary General welcomed Stoiximan as new ESSA members;
“Stoiximan has quickly established itself as a major player in Greece and has built a positive and mutually beneficial commercial relationship with sports bodies. The operator is intent on complementing that with a committed and responsible attitude to protecting the integrity of all sporting events. I am delighted that Stoiximan has agreed to become part of a growing and influential ESSA structure,”
Ioannis Spanoudakis, board member of Stoiximan stated: “Sports betting is a central part of our business and sporting corruption represents an ongoing threat to it. We believe that it is important that betting operators not only take a stand against corruption individually, but also collectively and in partnership. Being part of ESSA with a recognised global reach, effective alert system and committed members and integrity partners is the right business move for Stoiximan, our consumers and sport.”
