Brazil.- FIFA showed its commitment to sports integrity at the beginning of the U-17 World Cup. The sports entity trained participants from the 24 countries that are part of the tournament on betting and transparency. The event started on Saturday, October 26.

Before the first match, FIFA held interactive sessions on how to report the possible manipulation of matches. In addition, FIFA talked about the prevention of sports betting. Since last year, FIFA has taken a proactive stance to prevent damage around football.

“Prevention is the key. And, therefore, it is essential for us to adopt a proactive stance. In addition, insist through open dialogue on the pre-eminent importance of integrity,” said the Deputy Director of Legal and Compliance and Director of Integrity and Institutional Services at FIFA, Oliver Jaberg.

“It is a wonderful initiative for FIFA to be proactive about a problem that affects our sport. And it is essential that children can learn about it. They read about this problem in the news, I think they know it exists, but it is very important to know how it can affect us,” added Canada national team coach Andrew Olivieri.
