NEW UEFA INITIATIVE REGARDING MATCH FIXING
Mar 11, 2014
Posted in:

Match fixing has been the subject of various initiatives by UEFA with a view to preventing this maligned practice. Malta, through the MFA’s Integrity Officer, has been at the beck and call of these initiatives and is fully engaged in the pursuit of a cleaner game at all levels.


 
 
The latest action regarding this matter is the introduction as from this year of a series of match-fixing prevention sessions designed for integrity officers from European Football Federations. The officers will be invited to attend all the Under 17 and Under 19 elite round mini-tournament matches, with the prevention sessions earmarked to have each team instructed to warn players and staff against getting involved in match-fixing.
 
 
This is a matter that UEFA is taking very seriously and the education of younger categories of players involved in Male and Female U-17 and U-19, competitions as well as referees and coaches will be the focal point in the presentation of this theme.
 
 
Such a programme will also focus on the possibility of these match-fixing prevention sessions to be an integral part of the Under-17 UEFA Euro Finals to be held in Malta between the 9th and 21st May.
