partnership deal was signed between IBIA, the international betting integrity association, and Jdigital, the Spanish online gambling trade body. The deal provides a framework for cooperation and coordination.
Both associations will work on projects aimed at promoting regulated betting markets with high consumer channeling and related consumer, sports, and operator integrity protection measures, under the agreement of understanding. Collaborative activity will be focused on the continuing development of the Spanish market.
Andrea Vota, Director General of Jdigital, stated in a press release: “This partnership is a clear sign of Jdigital’s commitment to safe and responsible gambling. Betting is the main activity of online gambling in Spain and it is the industry’s will to keep this segment a safe, trustworthy one. We are excited to start collaborating with IBIA, who we consider the best partner in this crusade”.
“Spain is an important market for IBIA members, many of which are also part of Jdigital. A closer alliance between our associations, therefore, makes perfect sense, especially with the expected offshore channelization challenges to the Spanish market from the recent advertising and sponsorship restrictions. IBIA will be working closely with our colleagues at Jdigital to utilize our unique international data to inform and enhance the integrity of that market and its sporting events,” said Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA.
