France PMU joins Essa

pmuFrench racing operator Pari Mutuel Urbain (PMU) has joined international Sports betting integrity body, ESSA.

“As an early warning system, ESSA’s ability to provide intelligence on irregular or suspicious betting activity is considerably enhanced by the PMU becoming a member of our association. I’m looking forward to working closely with the PMU as we continue to strive for new and better ways to keep betting related match-fixing out of sport for good,” said Khalid Ali, Secretary-General, ESSA.

“We are constantly aware of the need for all of sport’s stakeholders to work together to combat match-fixing,” said Pierre Pages, PMU General Secretary. “We believe that ESSA, with its excellent links not only with sports governing bodies but also regulators and other intelligence units, is the correct platform to coordinate this effort.”
PMU is the leading pari-mutuel operator in Europe and ranks second worldwide.
