ANJ further strengthens its efforts against match-fixing
The French ANJ continues strengthening its efforts against match-fixing.
In a recent post published by the French gambling authority, the ANJ wrote that the country’s minister of sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, visited the regulator to assess its match-fixing monitoring solution deployed for the ongoing Rugby World Cup. The system focused on the match between the national teams of France and Italy at the time of the visit.
The regulatory authority mentioned that throughout the game, which recorded around 75 million euros worth of bets placed in France, it detected no suspicious activities at all. The ANJ also stated that it recorded the betting activities of all locally licensed wagering operators, which allowed it to further ensure that no match-fixing was taking place.
Furthermore, the regulatory authority mentioned that it will continue strengthening its efforts against a variety of sports integrity problems. In its announcement, the regulator also mentioned that during her visit, the minister announced that the country would imminently publish a decree for the creation of a national platform to fight against match-fixing.
This announcement follows the publication of the ANJ’s latest responsible gambling campaign about a month ago, focusing on the same sports tournament, the Rugby World Cup. Check out our coverage of the regulatory authority’s latest initiative to learn more.
