11 on Thursdaypearl May This International Institute for Governance and Risk (“GovRisk”) and lead partner Genius Sports Brazil will host the 2nd matchnd Integrity in Sport Summit in Brasilia. This summit came after representatives of the Ministry of Finance, the Special Sports Secretariat, the Prosecutor’s Office and the Federal Police met in Brasilia in October 2019. At that summit, it was decided that the Association for Integrity in Sports would be beneficial to the industry and ABRADIE was launched recently. Since that inaugural event, public scrutiny over sports and betting has intensified in Brazil, match-fixing has reached endemic levels, and Brazilian football has triggered the most honesty alerts of any sport in the world.

With the upcoming sports betting regulation by the Brazilian Ministry of Finance, the summit will discuss the potential implications of the sports betting regulation in Brazil in terms of taxation, licensing requirements and ways to detect, prevent and investigate suspicious betting activities. International experts from regulated markets such as the UK, Italy, USA and Australia will share their views on legalization and regulatory best practices in these mature markets.

The summit will leverage the most advanced technical solutions available and discuss the development of regulatory models to identify and map current crime trends to help foster collaboration between policymakers, regulators and all sports stakeholders to protect Brazilian sport from match-fixing.

Lead partner Genius Sports will demonstrate how advances in big data monitoring technology, artificial intelligence and expert intelligence systems enable rapid detection of suspicious bets to aid in match-fixing prevention, detection and investigation and support local and international law enforcement efforts.

Dominic Le Moignan, Executive Director of GovRisk, aforementioned: “This summit is both timely and extremely important, following continued efforts to regulate sports betting in Brazil, as well as an increase in match fixing attempts in some Brazilian football leagues and other top sports. The Summit is a unique opportunity for Brazil to learn from the successes and mistakes of other regulated markets and design an ecosystem that supports both sports teams and players against criminal activity and preserves the integrity of Brazilian sport now and for generations to come.

Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sportsaforementioned: “In legalized sports betting markets, effective regulation provides greater transparency, collaboration and information sharing – all of which are pillars of protecting the integrity of sport. While match-fixing is common in Brazil right now, regulators have an opportunity to create a leading regulatory framework that directly addresses this once-in-a-lifetime issue. We look forward to working with other key stakeholders and sharing our extensive experience in sports integrity, data and regulation to protect and enhance the future of Brazilian sport.
