7 Nov 2017

suspicious bettingESSA, the International sports betting integrity body, announced the results of its investigation about suspicious betting for the Q3 of 2017. The results are really worrying, as there are 72 suspicious cases, 46 for tennis, 8 for football, 8 for table tennis, 4 for basketball, 2 for badminton, 2 for snooker and 2 for volleyball.

The integrity report for the Q3 includes articles by Interpol and Matt Fowler, ESSA’s betting integrity officer.

Till now, in 2017 ESSA and its members have been reported 152 cases in nine months.

Khalid Ali, ESSA Secretary General said: “The figures for this quarter again demonstrate the ongoing threat that faces the regulated betting sector and our sports and regulatory authority partners. ESSA has redoubled its efforts to meet that challenge and invested in a number of key initiatives and activities. Partnership working remains at the heart of that approach, with our recent betting integrity event and general stakeholder engagement programme a testament to that.”
