The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has published a detailed report with 65 betting alerts reported to the authorities during the third quarter of 2021, which represents a decrease of 14% compared to the same period of the previous year.
IBIA has broken down the alerts by sports and continents. More specifically, the alerts covered tennis (23 cases), football (18), table tennis (17), electronic sports (2) and one of each in handball, cricket, squash, basketball, and futsal. From a geographic perspective, Europe accounted for almost 60% of all alerts reported, followed by Asia with 15% and Africa with 12%.
Regarding these results, Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, highlighted the decrease in alerts and explained "Tennis provided the highest number of alerts during the first three quarters with 47, followed by football with 46, table tennis 33 and electronic sports with 25 cases. These four sports represented 90% of the alerts reported in the first nine months."
On the other hand, Ali valued the “decision of the Ontario authorities to require that all licensed betting operators be part of an integrity monitoring body, a position which is already in force in the recently opened market in the Netherlands.”
It should be noted that IBIA's monitoring and alert platform is a highly effective tool that detects and reports suspicious activities in its members' betting markets. The association has long-standing information sharing partnerships with major sports and gaming regulators to use their data and prosecute corruption.
