The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) reported 88 cases of suspicious betting to relevant authorities during the second quarter (Q2) of 2022. The Q2 alerts covered eight sports, with the top three being football (32 cases), tennis (27) and horseracing (12), and accounting for over 80% of all alerts reported. The alerts spanned 36 countries, with Europe accounting for 52% of all alerts reported, followed by Asia (20%) and North America (15%).

Ontario was the focus of regulatory interest during Q2, with the Canadian province opening its online market to regulated operators. IBIA has been accredited as an independent integrity monitor by the Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) and represents the majority of the operators currently offering sports betting in the province.

The IBIA is the leading global voice on integrity for the licensed betting industry. It is run by operators for operators, protecting members from corruption through collective action. Its monitoring and alert platform is a highly effective anti-corruption tool that detects and reports suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets.

The association has longstanding information sharing partnerships with leading sports and gambling regulators to utilise its data and prosecute corruption. It represents the sector at high-level policy discussion forums such as the IOC, UN, Council of Europe and European Commission.

The IBIA publishes quarterly and annual reports covering the integrity alerts reported through its monitoring and alert platform, which can be viewed on the website here.
