Sport is a multi-billion dollar business, with intricate ties to political and private interests. As we navigate through the current wave of allegations of corruption in football, athletics, cricket and global sports governance in general, there has never been a more appropriate time to discuss the ways that sports are vulnerable to corruption, and the detrimental effect that this abuse of power can have on the sector.

The Global Corruption Report (GCR) on sport is the most comprehensive analysis of sports corruption to date. It consists of more than 60 contributions from leading experts in the fields of corruption and sport, from sports organisations, governments, multilateral institutions, sponsors, athletes, supporters, academia and the wider anti-corruption movement.

Join us as we officially launch the Global Corruption Report (GCR) on sport, featuring comprehensive analysis of leading experts from sports organisations, governments, multilateral institutions, sponsors, athletes, supporters, academia and the wider anti-corruption movement.
