Under the National Policy on Match-fixing in Sport, all sporting organisations will be expected to provide appropriate education to players, player agents, support personnel, officials and staff on their responsibilities under the sports anti-match-fixing policy template and code of conduct template.
To assist sporting organisations, the Australian government has developed a free education program which covers the following key learning areas:
- what is match-fixing in sport—history and examples
- the growth of sports betting and why match-fixing has become a significant threat to the integrity of sport
- how match-fixing can ruin careers and endanger lives
- how match fixers may target athlete, officials and other relevant people
- addictions—a gateway to corruption
- how to protect athletes, officials and other relevant persons from corruption and their reporting requirements
- code of conduct requirements and other integrity tools, and
- support and counselling options.
The education program is available at Keep Sport Honest.
