“Tutto parte dalla Conoscenza – Le Regole del Gioco Pulito”
Italy’s second division, Lega Serie B, signed an agreement with Sportradar Integrity Services, under which the betting fraud prevention specialists have provided both education workshops and e-learning packages to the senior teams and youth teams of all 22 clubs for the 2014/15 season and the next two.
The workshops have helped all participants understand why match-fixing is a growing problem, how fixers make their approaches and what the consequences of fixing are, using real-life case studies. The e-learning tutorials have supported and supplemented the workshops, ensuring that each participant understands what they learnt and is comfortable with the information.

The most important asset of football is its supporters. Deceiving football supporters means deceiving the whole football world. That is the reason why knowledge and training about match fixing is essential for Serie B‘s credibility, and is fundamental to ensuring our stadiums are full. I would like to underline how important teamwork is to ensuring the effective defeat of match-fixing, and our key ally is Sportradar, which already collaborates with many other football associations worldwide.
