Anti-match-fixing education program

Page last updated: 25 October 2013

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.
