Following a story published by Reuters on 27 April 2017, the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS) has made the following statement:
“In order to strengthen our work in the field of sport safety, security and integrity, in 2016, the ICSS undertook a comprehensive review of its organisational structure and portfolio of services.
“Like most proactive organisations, the ICSS needs to continually adapt its resources in line with its overall strategy and with market dynamics in the sport safety, security and integrity sectors. Following on from the conclusion of this review, the ICSS has restructured and is currently reorganising and, as part of this, we can confirm that some roles across the ICSS Group have been affected.
“Contrary to some reports, no final decision has been made yet on the number of roles affected. The ICSS can also confirm that there has been no change or cuts to its budget from 2016 to 2017 and that any changes to roles are as a result of the ongoing reorganisation of departments.
“Recognising that this is a difficult period for staff who are leaving the organisation, the ICSS aims to provide appropriate support to staff who are affected during this transition period.”
