REPORT: HOW ARE ORGANISED CRIME GROUPS INVOLVED IN SPORTS CORRUPTION?

A news release from Europol on 5 August advised that a new report highlights the link between sports corruption and organised crime: the characteristics of criminal networks, their structure and their modus operandi. In addition, the report analyses the different types of match-fixing as the most prominent form of sports corruption monitored by Europol. Football remains the most targeted and manipulated sport by international organised crime groups, it says, and individual sports competitions like tennis with a limited number of key participants (e.g. players and/or chair umpires) are an even easier corruption target for match-fixing gangs.
