Integrity in sport

The INTERPOL Integrity in Sport e-learning programmes have been developed to educate the primary targets of match-fixers within the football community on how to recognize, resist and report any form of match manipulation.

The interactive modules are designed to help key actors understand how and why they might be targeted, the consequences of becoming involved in match-fixing, and what to do if approached.

Young players

Young-players

When players are at the beginning of their careers and are not yet earning on the same salary scale as older, more established professionals, they may be more susceptible to bribery. Young players who become involved in match-fixing run the risk of damaging their career before it has even begun.

Players

Players

It goes without saying that players have a direct influence over the course of a match. Given their pivotal role it is of little surprise that those who might want to influence the outcome of a game will pick the player as a possible target for corruption.

Referees

Referee

Apart from the players, the match officials – in particular the referee – are the only individuals whose actions can directly affect the outcome of a match. With organized crime groups able to promise a large financial reward, there may be a temptation for match officials to help fix a match.

Managers and coaches

Coaches-and-managers

Managers and coaches have regular access to the players and have the ability to influence how a match is played. As such they may be directly targeted by match-fixers or brought under pressure from within the club, primarily by the club executives.
