Tuesday 7th August 2018 – To coincide with the start of the 2018/19 football season, leading online bookmaker Betway has partnered with the Professional Players Federation (PPF) to release a new series of short films highlighting key messages around betting integrity in sport. The films have been produced in partnership with and are funded by Betway and the PPF’s other betting integrity partners.
Alongside bookmaker representatives, the series features contributions from various player associations, including the WPBSA, PFA, PCA and RPA, as well as sports integrity experts.
The films follow a Q&A format and are aimed at players focusing on a number of different topics around betting, match fixing and the passing of inside information. They also demonstrate the close working relationship between the sports and betting industries in order to counter corruption and keep British sport clean, while maintaining its world leading reputation in sporting integrity.
PPF Chairman Brendon Batson OBE said: “Player associations do a great job in educating players about betting integrity and these new films are designed to complement this education by giving bite size information and advice for players who may either want to learn more or seek support from their player association. We are grateful to Betway and our other betting integrity partners for their funding of player education in this area.”
Anthony Werkman CEO of Betway said: “Our support of the Professional Players Federation is an extremely important part of our wider work in the areas of sporting integrity and player education around gambling. Our aims dovetail with that of the PPF in that we want a clean, competitive and ultimately fun environment for our customers to test their knowledge against. To our mind these videos will help ensure that both players and the customers of Betway continue to compete and play solely for the love of the game.”
The films are available to view on the PPF Youtube channel and are available to all PPF members to use online or in more formal education settings.
