The Prevalence of Corruption in International Sport

In this section

This project, commissioned by the Remote Gambling Association (RGA) and its partners (European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) and European Sports Security Association (ESSA)), evaluates the prevalence of corruption in international sport.

By analysing a database of 2,089 cases of corruption – match-fixing (betting related), match-fixing (non-betting related), the misuse of ‘inside information’ for betting purposes, and doping – from between 2000 and 2010, this research identifies key trends in the data collated regarding the frequency of such cases on an annual basis and by geographical location, with a primary focus on Europe.
