PPF Review 2015 – Education to combat Match Fixing

brendonbatsonThe 2015 review of sports betting integrity education for elite athletes by member player associations has been published by the Professional Players Federation (PPF).

The Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch MP, attended the reception at which it was launched which was itself hosted by Nigel Adams MP.

A key part of the review was the discussion of the ongoing need for education against match fixing within the UK to protect the integrity of sports.

The PPF, which has a long standing partnership with Ladbrokes, bet365, Betfair and Betway, is helping to deliver this education directly to thousands of players across members’ clubs. One achievement noted in the report is that 3,423 senior players have already received face-t0-face education on sports betting integrity.

The Chairman of the PPF, Brendon Batson OBE, said of the review: “The scope of the PPF’s education work continues to grow and develop. Each year we are reaching new sports and new players.”

“The funding and expertise from our partnership with bet365, Betfair, Betway and Ladbrokes makes all the difference. This partnership means our athletes are receiving some of the best sports betting integrity education in the world,” he continued.
