The June edition of EGBA News is out now!

06 Jun 2018 – With the 2018 World Cup just around the corner, public attention over the next few weeks will be focused on the football in Russia. Global sporting events of this kind capture the global public imagination and are extremely popular but they also provide a good moment to consider and showcase what sports stakeholders are doing to prevent corruption in sports, and in particular match-fixing.

In this EGBA news, we are honoured to have MEP Bodgan Wenta, the Polish MEP and former international handball player, sharing his views on what needs to be done and what is needed to keep corruption out of sport. Paulina Tomczyk, Secretary General of EU Athletes, the European association of Athletes, explains how player unions have been a pioneer in educating athletes about the risk of match-fixing, focussing especially on the younger athletes.
