4 June 2014

The excellent presentations that were given at The Ugly Side of the Beautiful Game: Match Fixing in Football are now available, please click on the links below for these, available via our YouTube channel.

All six of these excellent presentations were different, but complementary, and testament to the nuanced and sophisticated nature of the problem. In addition, the day illustrated the need for an holistic, global and cooperative approach, and one that is both transparent and robust. In particular, as was noted in Kevin Carpenter’s presentation, it must be something capable of enforcement.
