Sportradar attends INTERPOL-FIFA sports integrity workshop in Guatemala
More than 75 delegates from football, government and law enforcement attended the INTERPOL-FIFA sports integrity workshop co-hosted by CONCACAF and the Central American Football Union (UNCAF) in Guatemala City.
The purpose of the conference was to increase the awareness and understanding of match fixing in football, as well as to examine the multitude of characteristics associated with such activity.
Representatives of the seven national associations that comprise the Central American region (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama), as well as the Mexican Football Federation, were present.
Over the two days, presentations were made by INTERPOL, FIFA and Sportradar. Additionally, each national association shared their experiences and concerns relating to match fixing.
Holding a presentation on “Tackling Match Fixing and Corruption in Football – with the help of powerful sports law”, Sportradar made a valuable contribution to the workshop.
“The depth of information provided at the workshop and the active participation of the national associations were very impressive,” said CONCACAF General Secretary, Enrique Sanz.”I am delighted that CONCACAF is taking a leadership role in addressing corruption in our sport. “The time we spent together in Guatemala, however, is not the end of process. Instead, it is the beginning of a necessary journey.”
