FIFPro to fight match fixing

FIFPro is to launch an education programme to help tackle the problem of match fixing in football.

The project, called Don't Fix It and to be finalised in June 2014, will hope to eradicate a problem that has been rife in football of late by educating players on the issue. It has received a European Union grant and FIFPro will closely cooperate with both Birkbeck University and UEFA.

The specific aims of the project include raising awareness of the dangers of match fixing, raising the ability of those involved in professional football to take effective action against match fixing, reducing the conditions that lead to match fixing and establishing strong and relevant networks at national and European levels.

Together with Birkbeck University, FIFPro will develop an online reporting mechanism that enables players, referees, officials and administrators to anonymously report suspected incidents of bullying, intimidation, harassment and inappropriate approaches made to them to fix matches.

While with UEFA, FIFPro will develop a joint Code of Conduct against match fixing, which will be implemented and monitored

The Don't Fix It project will be launched in England, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Romania, Scotland and Slovenia. Once the programme has been fully established, FIFPro will be expecting other countries to join the project.
