Colombian football bets on sports integrity

The Dimayor Integrity Program has received the Colombian Football Federation’s support.

Colombia.- The Colombian Football Major Division (Dimayor) presented its Integrity Program for Colombian football earlier this month. The program has already received support from the Colombian Football Federation.

In addition, it complies with the guidelines established by CONMEBOL and FIFA, and will be applied in Colombian professional football competitions.

About the Integrity Program

The Integrity Program will also be promoted by Spain’s LaLiga. Dimayor plans a series of training sessions on August 20 and 21, in which LaLiga will participate. The training targets club presidents, legal advisors, managers, management and administrative staff, and to members of sports teams located in Bogotá. The director of integrity of LaLiga, José Ignacio Arbea Sarasa, will lead the activities.

In addition, the new Integrity Program will be supported by FIFA through the FCF. They will hold two working days on August 28 and 29. Finally, President Jorge Enrique Vélez will attend a panel on sports integrity, which will take place at the Grand Hyatt on August 22 at 8:30 a.m.

Dimayor and Fecoljuegos

Furthermore, Fecoljuegos will also join in efforts to combat match-fixing. Likewise, the Dimayor administration has recommended including clauses in players contracts and anyone subject to the scope of the codes of ethics of FIFA, CONMEBOL and DIMAYOR.
