It features a range of best practice products and resources – including examples of education programmes and prevention strategies, models of best practice and case studies and relevant research and reports.

Progress reports on the delivery of the Sports and Sports Betting Action Plan will be published on the website, along with news articles and updates related to betting integrity from sport, law enforcement agencies, the betting industry and the Gambling Commission.

Nick Tofiluk, director of regulation, said: “We have already taken some very positive steps in Britain to address the risks to the integrity of sport and sports betting. I’m delighted that what we have achieved so far, along with our plans for the future is now accessible to all, in one place, via the SBIF website” 

Tracey Crouch, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Department for Culture, Media and Sport, added:The integrity of sport is absolutely paramount and we have to do all that we can to protect it. The Sports Betting Integrity Action Plan is about ensuring that Britain remains a safe place to bet on sport and to tackle any threat of corruption that emerges. 

“We cannot be complacent. The Gambling Commission, sports bodies, law enforcement agencies and betting operators are all well aligned on this with effective collaboration vital in the fight against match fixing.”
