The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) hosted its first Sports Betting Integrity Conference, opening an avenue for open dialogue and knowledge-sharing about this issue. MGA  said the event showcases the Authority’s dedication to maintaining a gaming landscape that is free from corruption and any form of unethical practices.

The event convened high-profile stakeholders integral to the sports betting integrity sector, including the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA), the eSports Integrity Commission (ESIC), Genius Sports and Sportradar.

Local stakeholders included the Malta Police Force, the Malta Football Association (MFA), the Authority for Integrity in Maltese Sports and the Office of the Attorney General.

“As the MGA, ensuring the integrity of sports betting is not merely a regulatory obligation; it is a cornerstone of our commitment to fostering a fair and sustainable gaming environment,” Charles Mizzi, MGA CEO, said.

Mizzi emphasized that the conference’s foremost objective was to lead a united effort in addressing the complex challenges of maintaining integrity within sports and sports betting.

As the industry continues to transform – introducing new technologies and increasingly sophisticated methods – success depends on the ability to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices, he said. Through this synergy, stakeholders can outpace those intent on corrupting the essence of sports and betting.

Such gatherings therefore serve as invaluable opportunities to pool resources and expertise, serving as catalysts for positive change, the authority remarked.
