“Match-fixing: 90′ di formazione e prevenzione”
In November 2013, Italian Serie A Club Genoa CFC successfully participated in a Sportradar Betting Integrity and Anti-match-fixing Workshop. The programme was organised to educate first team players, coaching staff and youth players about the dangers of match-fixing. Participants were made aware of the rules and regulations in place regarding betting and match-fixing and of the penalties for breaching these rules.
The workshop, which took place in the Museum of Genoa CFC, was followed by a panel session discussion and press-conference attended by national journalists and TV broadcasters. Participating speakers included the CEO of Genoa CFC, the CEO of iziplay Cogetech, the Director of the Autonomous Administration of the State Monopolies (AAMS), the General Director of Lega Serie A and an Integrity Executive of Sportradar.
The programme was supported by the club’s main sponsor Cogetech and its brand iZiplay! respectively. Through its involvement in this scheme, iZiplay! has taken the important step as a betting operator of assisting the fight against match-fixing in sport.
