Today, Stats Perform Integrity and Starlizard Integrity Services released their second annual Suspicious Betting Trends in Global Football Report. The report was completed in collaboration with TXODDS and aims to provide fellow stakeholders in the sports integrity community with a meaningful and informative overview of current trends in suspicious football betting.

The 2019 report was compiled with data from 62,250 football matches played in 2018, including domestic and international competitions across 115 countries and 6 continents. It compares the findings from the 2018 report and, once again, examines the geographical hotbeds of suspicious activity, breaks down suspicious matches by level and competition, and looks in detail at youth, international, friendly and women’s matches.

Highlights of the 2019 Suspicious Betting Trends in Global Football Report:

Perhaps most significantly, whilst this year’s report is based on the review of nearly 14% more matches than in the previous year and uses the same methodology, the number of matches identified as having suspicious betting patterns has decreased from 397 to 377.

Youth matches continue to be an area of particular concern. Although this year’s report shows that the number of suspicious youth matches has declined from 62 matches seen in 2017 to 58 matches in 2018, they are still highly overrepresented in this year’s report: youth matches account for 5.6% of all matches analysed in this year’s report, but 15.4% of all suspicious matches identified.

Success story: The 2018 report identified suspicious betting markets in a particular European country, predominantly in a lower level league. Effective action by a sport rights holder and law enforcement in that country led to a number of arrests in the first quarter of 2018, disrupting what is believed to have be an organised, cross-border match-fixing operation. Since then, there has been a marked decrease in matches with suspicious betting activity identified in that country. This positive outcome is a testament to the appetite shown to confront the issue.

 

Jake Marsh, Head of Integrity Stats Perform:

 

“This report is intended to provide football and integrity stakeholders with a meaningful insight into matches with suspicious betting markets on a global scale. We believe that by shining a light on suspicious activity in a non-accusatory public forum we can elevate understanding of the latest trends and areas of concern to integrity stakeholders. The efforts of integrity stakeholders, sports governing bodies and law enforcement are amplified when working together towards a common goal. To this end, we share the results of our analysis with stakeholders on a non-commercial basis in order to assist their efforts in protecting the integrity of football.”

 

Affy Sheikh, Head of Starlizard Integrity Services:

“It is important that the football world remains diligent and alert to integrity threats at all levels of the game. In producing this report, a huge effort has been made and a vast amount of data analysed

German sports betting operators are going to start TV campaigns. Betano and Unibet are among the customers of Magic Sports Media in Germany who will be advertising on the Sport1 free-to-air sports channel.

With the restart of the Bundesliga, the time is right, says the advertising company, for sports betting operators, major players, to resume communications with sports fans. It is the third year that Betano has promoted itself successfully through this medium and has already been accorded the EGR Mobile Operator of the Year award.

Similarly, Unibet is promoting itself in the Bundesliga, this time for the second successive year on Sport1 with spots on Sunday morning and Sky Sports News. They also have an Austrian advertising window. It is the official betting partner of Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig has connections too.

“Betano and Unibet have firmly established themselves in Germany since their successful start. The high-reach and target group affinity environments on Sport1 offer our two aspiring partners an excellent platform for staging their offers in order to further expand their market presence,” Christian Madlindl, managing director of Magic Sports Media, said.
