Sportradar attends EPAS Seminar on “Sports Betting and Anti-Money Laundering”
Along with the Cyprus Presidency of the European Union, the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport (EPAS) co-organised a seminar in Brussels to facilitate an exchange of knowledge between experts in Sport policies, betting operations and the fight against money laundering, to consider whether the field of sports betting activities should be investigated further as a risky sector with regards to money laundering.
The seminar was opened by Torbjørn Frøysnes from the Council of Europe, and Pambos Stylianou, Chairman of the Cyprus Sports Organisation.
The programme included presentations and discussions to learn about and share various aspects of the sports betting operators, financial agencies and the authorities in charge of sport and law enforcement. In this context, Sportradar held a worthwhile presentation on “The threat of betting-related match-fixing in sports”.
An important element of the programme was also to provide an area for the participants to share their experiences and to encourage working with each other.
Participants included representatives of public authorities as well as sports organisations involved in the regulation of sports betting, the preventions of betting-related misbehaviours in sports competitions, law enforcement in the financial area and fight against money laundering.
