The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has revealed it flagged 50 cases of suspected sports gambling corruption to authorities in the third quarter of 2019, bringing the total number of incidents this year to 138.

Tennis (30) and football (15) accounted for 90% of the alerts in Q3, where Europe (42%) and Asia (36%) are the two most popular locations for alerts based off their sporting events.

Khalid Ali, the Secretary General of the IBIA, said there had been fewer this quarter and was happy with the ongoing growth of the agency’s operations.

“The year to date has seen a significant downturn in alerts, notably on tennis,” he said.

“The scope of the association’s unique and global leading monitoring system has been boosted by four new members during 2019, with discussions ongoing with a number of other companies interested in investing in integrity and protecting their businesses from corruption.”

The 50 alerts for Q3 came from six sports across five different continents.

While those figures are similar to the 51 alerts found in Q2 2019, they represent a reduction of 30% on the 72 alerts detected in Q3 2018.

The IBIA strives to combat betting corruption across the globe in a bid to protect the integrity of sports, athletes and the gambling industry.

The agency uses a combination of tools to detect and report suspicious activity on its members’ sports betting markets and odds, whilst also tracking individual accounts.
