Match-fixing: protecting the beautiful game
26-27 February, Nadi, Fiji
International organized crime groups are increasingly involved in match-fixing in football. As well as damaging the integrity of the sport, the huge profits that are generated are used to fund other illegal activities.
Match-fixing in football is a global challenge that requires a coordinated response from a variety of stakeholders on national, regional and international levels.
In this context, this INTERPOL-FIFA conference will bring together representatives from football, government, the betting industry and law enforcement, in order to raise awareness of the issues related to match-fixing in football today.
It will also help identify gaps in current international procedures and make recommendations on good practice and areas for development.
The conference is being organized in partnership with the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC), the Fiji Football Association (FFA), and the Fiji Police.
