Case Studies

Match-fixing education to Premier League clubs

The ICSS has worked with a range of clubs and academies around the world - including within the English Premier League - to educate young footballers on how to protect themselves from match-fixers and integrity threats.

This has involved workshops led by our in-house investigators working with players between 14-21 years of age.

As well as being informed of betting and match-fixing rules, participants are also taken through recent case studies along with detailed descriptions of how individuals infiltrated and convinced players to fix matches.

Tanzania Football Federation and Tanzanian Street Children’s Sports Academy

ICSS sport integrity experts have travelled to Tanzania to deliver anti-match fixing awareness seminars to young players at the Tanzania Football Federation and Tanzanian Street Children’s Sports Academy. The programme involved delivering match-fixing prevention seminars to the Tanzania Under-17 Squad at the Karume National Stadium, as well as educating street children and vulnerable young people from around the Mwanza region.

Players attending the seminars learnt about a range of topics, including how match-fixers approach and groom young players, methods to help recognise, resist and report an approach, as well as being warned about the very serious and real consequences of match-fixing.
