Union of European Football Associations Investigates Ibrahimovic Over Links to Malta-based Gambling Company
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is being investigated by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) for his “alleged financial interest in a betting company,” European soccer’s governing body said.

Swedish daily Aftonbladet reported this month that the 39-year-old AC Milan striker was a partner in Bethard, a Malta-based gaming company.

UEFA’s disciplinary regulations state that players should not have a financial interest in betting.

Ibrahimovic has represented Milan in UEFA’s Europa League. He came out of international retirement last month after an absence of nearly five years to play for Sweden in two World Cup qualifiers.

“A UEFA ethics and disciplinary inspector has today been appointed to conduct a disciplinary investigation regarding a potential violation of the UEFA disciplinary regulations by Mr. Zlatan Ibrahimović for having an alleged financial interest in a betting company,” UEFA said in a statement.

The audit was carried out on 25th March 2021 and the G4 accreditation, as a result of this audit, was renewed with immediate effect – the third consecutive time that Enteractive has received the certification since 2017.

Pedram Padidar, COO at Enteractive, commented, “We’re incredibly proud to have scored so highly with the G4 auditors, and this just goes to show the commitment and priority we give to responsible gambling practices in the daily course of our partners engagement projects.  The players are our industry’s most important assets, so it’s crucial to offer sustainable entertainment with safety standards to keep the players enjoying the fun, while protecting those at risk”.
