KNOW THE RULES – YOUR CAREER MIGHT DEPEND ON IT

You need to make sure you know the rules on sports betting. They might change from one season to another. If you don’t understand then ask « your player association » to explain.

Being charged with a betting offense can ruin your career and will harm your reputation forever

FIXING ANY PART OF A GAME IS A CRIME

It is just as serious to fix the smallest part of a match as it is to fix the world championship

If you fix once you will be forever trapped by the match fixers

YOU MUST REPORT ANY SUSPICIOUS APPROACHES

A failure to report approaches is an offense that can lead to long bans.

Match fixers will try to trap you slowly through gifts and favors, be careful with your sporting environment and entourage.

YOU MUST NOT GAMBLE ON YOUR OWN SPORT

And you must not ask anyone else to bet for you

Betting companies and national betting regulators have sophisticated monitoring systems to catch cheats. If you place a bet you will appear on their radar/system.

Your phone and computer can be taped by the police and may be used as evidence

SENSITIVE INFORMATION SHOULD STAY WITHIN YOUR TEAM.

It’s an offense to pass on your knowledge to people who might use it for gambling
