Presenting Sponsors Announced for the 2023 Symposium on Competition Manipulation and Gambling in Sport: IBIA, bet365, betway and FanDuel

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and McLaren Global Sport Solutions (MGSS) are pleased to announce the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), together with its members bet365, Betway, and FanDuel as the presenting sponsors of the 2023 Symposium on Competition Manipulation and Gambling in Sport. The sponsors share a commitment to combating betting corruption to protect the integrity of sport and regulated betting markets globally.

As members of IBIA, bet365, Betway, and FanDuel undergo a rigorous due diligence process and must adhere to a code of conduct, committing them to responsible betting practices. IBIA and their partners have played a significant role in the monitoring, investigation, prosecution and sanctioning of parties involved in match-fixing. A not-for-profit association, IBIA is the largest operator-run integrity monitoring body in the world, with over 120 sports betting brands generating over US$137bn in handle per annum; the association represents the majority of the betting operators licensed in Ontario.

The goal of the 2023 Symposium on Competition Manipulation and Gambling in Sport is to develop a common way forward that will benefit sport and the gaming industry, as well as a comprehensive national program for all national and multi-sport organizations to adopt. The symposium has attracted registrants from around the world to gather in Toronto, Canada, on May 30-31. 

Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said: “IBIA and its members bet365, Betway and FanDuel are delighted to sponsor the preeminent event in Canada focused on addressing competition manipulation. It forms part of our continuing commitment to exploring the reasons behind, and solutions to, one of the most important issues facing both the Canadian sports sector and responsible regulated betting operators. We look forward to engaging in a constructive debate and to exploring effective cross-sector initiatives.”   

“We are grateful to bet365, Betway, FanDuel, and IBIA for sponsoring the symposium. Their commitment to combatting betting corruption will help protect the integrity of sport. We need every stakeholder in the sport gambling business to consider collaborative, innovative solutions to put a stop to match-fixing and competition manipulation, and we appreciate these sponsors stepping up to support this important initiative,” says Jeremy Luke, CCES president and CEO.

The symposium will take place May 30-31, 2023, at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto, Canada. Special rates are available for national and multi-sport organizations, athletes, and students and representatives from post-secondary academic institutions.
