"THE INVOLVEMENT OF ORGANIZED CRIME GROUPS IN SPORTS CORRUPTION" REPORT
The main objective of this report is to highlight the link between corruption in sport, in particular match-fixing and organized crime, and to raise awareness among practitioners and the public.
The data received by Europol on this phenomenon are by no means exhaustive, but nonetheless make it possible to describe the relevant operating methods and the links with organized crime and the most active GCOs.
This situation report provides an overview of how international criminal groups are involved in sports corruption, their characteristics and structure as well as how criminal networks operate and cooperate.
OCG's money laundering activities through sports corruption are also described. In addition, the report examines the types of match-fixing as the most prominent form of sports corruption monitored by Europol and examines the Asian betting model. In addition, criminal networks provide particular insight into the most targeted sports, with an emphasis on football and tennis.
