Good Practices in the Investigation of Match Fixing
Resource Guide on Good Practices in the Investigation of Match-Fixing. United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS)Sports bring out the best of us. Honour and fair play are integral to the conduct of sporting events, and to our enjoyment of them. But the joy that sports bring to billions of fans around the world can so easily be marred by crooked practices such as match-fixing. Corruption and the involvement of transnational organized crime in sport undermine confidence in results and tarnish reputations. Added to this, the huge profits generated by match-fixing can be channeled into other illegal activities. The ICSS and UNODC have developed this Resource Guide as a practical resource designed to help officials detect and investigate match-fixing. The case studies and practical investigation techniques offer important and useful support for those looking to enhance their knowledge and investigative skills within this relatively new but increasingly important area.
