October 18, 2023

Fewer incidents were reported year-over-year.

The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has reported 50 suspicious wagering alerts to authorities during 2023’s third quarter. Betting alerts related to football and tennis make up 56% of the incidents reported, according to the IBIA report.

So far this year, the IBIA has reported 148 alerts. During the third quarter, the 50 suspicious alerts came from IBIA members’ global businesses.

The IBIA Q3 report reflected a 41% decrease in the incidents reported, when compared to those posted during this time last year.

More alerts came from tennis than any other sport during the third quarter. Of the total reported, tennis accounted for 15 alerts in Q3. Football was the next highest, with 13 reported incidents.

IBIA CEO Khalid Ali elaborated further on the results from this quarter’s report.

He commented, “The quarter saw a continued reduction in alerts with a more than 30% decrease in the first three quarters relative to 2022, with tennis a major contributory factor. During the quarter, IBIA and the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) co-hosted a best practice integrity seminar in New York with many of the premier sports and betting operators in the US.

“That cross-sector cooperative approach underlines the strength of our relationship with tennis, as acknowledged by the ITIA, and our shared commitment to working in partnership to combat corruption in that sport.” 

The IBIA is a global integrity network that has more than 40 members and is made up of more than 100 betting brands. The association offers services that combat corruptions through a collaboration of worldwide operators.
