IBIA: An effective tool against corruption

IBIA is a non-profit entity, with no conflicts of interest in delivering commercial services to other sectors. Operators manage the IBIA, aiming to protect regulated sports betting markets against match-fixing.

The company’s global monitoring network is a highly effective anti-corruption tool, detecting and reporting suspicious activity in regulated betting markets. Through the IBIA network, it is possible to track transactional activities linked to individual customer accounts.

All IBIA members must undergo a rigorous due diligence process and commit to its code of conduct. Recently, the association released its third quarter health report, detailing 50 alerts reported in the period.

In 2022, the company reported 268 alerts to authorities, resulting in successful sporting or criminal sanctions against 15 teams, officials or players involved in suspicious activity at their matches.
