AFC collaborates to prevent 2015 Asian Cup match-fixing
With match-fixing impacting sport around the world, extensive measures have been implemented to combat this threat during the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2015 Asian Cup.
The AFC is collaborating with key stakeholders including the Australian Government and law enforcement, Football Federation of Australia and the Local Organising Committee while betting monitoring service provider Sportradar has been pivotal in proactively integrating an action plan to uphold the integrity of the tournament.
According to the AFC General Secretary, Dato’ Alex Soosay, upholding the integrity of its competitions is a key priority for the AFC.
Soosay explained “like any global football event, the AFC Asian Cup attracts a vast global betting turnover and therefore the need to have measures in place to successfully prevent, detect and respond to the threat of match-fixing is the main objective of the integrity action plan.
“The effective implementation of this plan has been evident thus far as all the monitored pre-tournament friendly matches have identified no evidence of match-fixing, which is an encouraging sign. The Asian Cup itself has started positively and we are quite confident that it will remain so throughout the competition.”.
The AFC Integrity Action Plan is made up of several core elements; awareness raising and educational training of players, team officials and match officials; detailed and technologically advanced monitoring of global betting markets through Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System; suspicious activity reporting through AFC’s confidential reporting mechanism and utilization of the Crime Stoppers program; and the establishment and testing of collaborative incident response procedures between AFC and Australian law enforcement with unprecedented levels of cooperation and mutual support.
