UEFA Launches Tender to Find a Partner to Conduct Feasibility Study Regarding the Fight Against Match-fixing in European Football
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has started the search for an individual or organisation to conduct a feasibility study regarding the fight against match-fixing in European football.

The aim of the feasibility study is to examine ways to enhance football’s capacity to investigate and prosecute match-fixing cases by bringing UEFA closer to public authorities, national police, governments and state prosecutors.

“We must do more to fight match-fixing aggressively because collectively and individually, we haven’t done enough. The most important thing is co-operation with governments because our problem always was and always is that, even if we know many things, each case has to be prosecuted,” Aleksander Čeferin, President of UEFA said.

“The main problem is that our jurisdiction ends at football. We cannot tap phones, we cannot put people in prison, and with many computer servers being 10,000km from Europe, it’s a problem we cannot solve on our own. This study will look at how to bring together the different actors on this stage, so we are all working in partnership, not isolation, to tackle one of the biggest threats to the integrity of sport,” Aleksander Čeferin added.

The problem of match-fixing has increased in recent years. UEFA believes that there are various reasons why the fight against match-fixing needs to be strengthened. This feasibility study aims to address these challenges.
