Sport and Recreation Victoria supports the National Policy on Match-Fixing in Sport and the work of the Sport Integrity Intelligence Unit within Victoria Police and the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation.
Australia's Sports Ministers endorsed the National Policy on Match-Fixing in Sport in 2011. It aims to protect the integrity of Australian sport.
The policy is underpinned by a nationally consistent legislative approach, strong links between governments, major sports, betting operators and law enforcers, and international collaboration.
This link is now strengthened through the introduction of Sport Integrity Australia who now coordinate responses to combat illegal activities that influence the course, or result of a sports event to gain an advantage for themselves or for others.
Sport and Recreation Victoria also promotes the use of the following anti-match-fixing resources:
- Integrity tools for sporting organisations on the Australian Government’s Department of Health website
- Sport Integrity Australia offer an Introduction to match-fixing e-learning program to help in identifying match fixing, how to report it and its consequences.
