HALLO Compliance Network to Discuss Sports Integrity in the US



HALLO Compliance Network to Discuss Sports Integrity in the US


HALLO Compliance Network, the platform bridging the gap between technology and the law, and Home of monthly online meetups fostering growth, education, and collaboration, returns with its 2nd HALLO Compliance Meetup featuring a powerhouse panel on “Safeguarding Integrity in Sports“!

The next HALLO Compliance Network Virtual Meetup will take place on December 19 via Zoom at 12:00 PM EST, featuring a compelling panel discussion that delves deep into the pressing issues surrounding sports integrity, match-fixing, and betting addiction.

The sports betting industry, including operators, providers, regulators and customers, recognizes that the essence of exhilarating sports betting lies in fair sports competitions. Consequently, numerous gambling laws prioritize the pivotal element of sports integrity. Locally, various educational initiatives have been implemented, and on a global scale, the Macolin Convention—a unique initiative dedicated to promoting fairness in sports—has garnered ratification from nine countries and signatures from an additional 32. Moreover, major sports federations such as the IOC and FIFA have initiated their own programs and initiatives in support of this cause.

The HALLO panel will have a closer look at how the prevention of the manipulation of sports competitions looks like in the US at this point in time, five years after first states regulated sports betting.
