Spelinspektionen enhances match-fixing information sharing

In July, Sweden will put new regulations into place with the goal of enhancing communication amongst important players in the anti-match-fixing field.

The duty of establishing a forum for the exchange of information regarding suspected occurrences of match-fixing has fallen to Spelinspektionen, the Swedish gambling regulator. Through this platform, Spelinspektionen will be able to provide sports federations and gambling corporations with information about suspected match-fixing.

The choice to put these policies into place was made in reaction to the detrimental effects of match-fixing. Niklas Wykman, Sweden’s Minister of Financial Markets, stressed that match-fixing hurts young sports as well as criminal groups. He said that athletes shouldn’t be used as pawns by organized crime. It’s critical to put an end to match-fixing in order to safeguard sports and fight criminal activity.

The Swedish government emphasized the need for increased information sharing, saying that by providing additional opportunities for information exchange, a comprehensive picture regarding particular suspicions can be formed from a collection of inaccurate suspicions held by individual parties. Therefore, it is crucial that these actors are able to communicate with one another and share information.

Beginning on the first of July, Spelinspektionen will have to communicate information regarding possible match-fixing on the common platform. In order to successfully prevent match-fixing and safeguard sports integrity, the objective is to strengthen collaboration and information exchange among key parties.
