Competition Manipulation

Also known as match-fixing, sporting competition manipulation is a deliberate attempt to alter or control aspects of, or the outcome of a game, match or competition.

Sport and Recreation Victoria supports the National Policy on Match-Fixing in Sport and supports the work of Victoria Police’s Sporting Integrity Intelligence Unit.

The Sports Ministers' of commonwealth and state and territory governments endorsed the National Policy on Match-Fixing in Sport in 2011, establishing a coordinated approach to combat competition manipulation in Australian sport.

The Policy is underpinned by a nationally consistent legislative approach and supports links between governments, sporting governing bodies, betting operators and law enforcement to safeguard the integrity of sport.

This link has been strengthened through the work of Sport Integrity Australia who coordinate responses to combat illegal activities that influence the course, or result of a sporting event.
