Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has published its Q3 2019 Monitoring and Intelligence Report. According to the document, the organisation’s intelligence activities led to the reporting of 23 matches to its partners, while 22 analysis-reports were sent to members or partners upon request.

In total, 209 alerts were dispatched to members, seven of which were attributed to North America. Football generated the majority of those alerts followed by soccer and tennis. South America saw 10 alerts related to soccer.

By far the highest number of alerts was created by activity in Europe (166) where soccer was the main culprit, followed by Asia (20) where soccer was the sole focus of activity.

GLMS President Ludovico Calvi stated: “GLMS Monitoring and intelligence have been particularly intense with the beginning of the new sport season. However, over Q3 we were pleased to continue to build solid foundations for global responsibilities and actions in the fight against sport competition manipulations. 

“We joined forces with the US National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), we supported the Brazilian Ministry of Economy in drafting their betting law with specific provisions safeguarding Sport Integrity, while we were pleased to contribute to the education of law enforcement authorities via our participation in the IntegriSport ERASMUS+ project.”
