FIFA introduce GIP to solve match-fixing issue

FIFA recently launched a Global Integrity Programme (GIP) aimed to provide all 211 member associations with enhanced knowledge and tools to fight and prevent match manipulation, according to a statement with the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
“In line with FIFA’s overall vision of making football truly global, as well as its ongoing commitment to protecting and promoting the integrity of the game, the FIFA Global Integrity Programme is designed to improve education and build integrity capacity within all 211 member associations by sharing advanced know-how and resources with integrity officers”, football authorities stated in their announcement.
Speaking about the FIFA Global Integrity Programme, FIFA President Gianni Infantino said: “Match-fixing is an issue that is very real and threatens the integrity and credibility of football in many countries around the world.
Working in close collaboration with experts at the UNODC and alongside other ongoing efforts that FIFA is taking, the FIFA Global Integrity Programme is another important step by FIFA to protect the integrity of football and will play an important role in educating and building capacity within member associations to help fight match-fixing at a local level.”—GNLM
