Sweden Announce Positive Message for the Work Against Match-Fixing
Strängnäs, Sweden (October 11, 2023) — The announcement that the government intends to join Sweden to the Macolin Convention will facilitate the work against match-fixing and corruption in sports. This is in line with the proposal from the government regarding the Spelinspektionen’s expanded mission and resources in match-fixing and illegal gambling.
The Swedish Gambling Authority is already active today in the European work against match-fixing, joining the convention will enable the authority to become even more involved in that work.
