Sport is a multi-billion pound resources-resources-business. It has intricate ties to political and private interests. This means rich opportunities for corruption. Yet across the sporting sector, most deals and decisions take place behind closed doors, allowing corruption to go unchecked and unpunished.

The Corruption in the UK report from Transparency International UK (TI-UK) revealed that sport is seen by the UK public as the second most corrupt sector in the country. Not suprising following the recent cases of spot fixing in cricket doping in cycling and the scandal over corruption in FIFA.

Sean Hamil (Director Birkbeck Sport Business Centre) will open the event, presenting TI-UK’s research into match-fixing in football. This will be followed by a panel discussion on how match-fixing in football can be tackled and on the issue of corruption in sport as a whole. There will be the chance to put questions to the panel.

We do hope you will be able to join us for what should be a both interesting and enjoyable evening.

18.00 Registration

20.45 Close

This event is part of an EU funded project on match-fixing.
