Over the year of 2019 the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has alerted 157 matches to its partners, according to the report published by GLMS.
The vast majority of the alerts went to our football partners FIFA and UEFA (98 alerts). The rest of the alerts were sent to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), Law Enforcement Authorities or Local Gaming Authorities or regulators.
Meanwhile, members of GLMS received 787 alerts over irregularities to betting patterns, 570 of which were recorded in Europe, with 88 in Asia and 65 in South America.
Football accounted for 450 of the 570 alerts in Europe. A good number of detailed analysis reports have been also prepared on request by members or partners!
In the 2019 monitoring intelligence report, GLMC president Ludovico Calvi sent a message to partners and members: “In 2019, we were also excited to see the long-awaited Council of Europe Convention on Sport Competition Manipulations come into force.
As you will read from our report, we were quite operationally active throughout the year, flagging early warning signs based on evidence and data related to sporting events across countless categories to our partners; as well as collaborating and delivering critical analysis and intelligence in our reports to our GLMS stakeholders, upon request.
As we look ahead to 2020, we will continue in our effort to expand our global membership base. We are also planning to open a new Integrity Hub in Canada, following Hong Kong to further consolidate the process of globalization of GLMS targeting North American jurisdictions”.Follow us on
