Malta Gaming Authority signs data sharing deal with Swedish FA14th May 2020 11:35 am GMT
The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has signed a data sharing agreement with the Swedish Football Association (Svenska Fotbollförbundet).
The deal is the latest in a series of other high-profile agreements which have been signed by the MGA over the past few months, including the Malta Football Association, the Tennis Integrity Unit, the International Cricket Council, and the International Olympic Committee.
The regulator said that the fight against match-fixing and the manipulation of sports relied on cooperation and the effective exchange of information.
“The data sharing agreement between the MGA and the SvFF allows for the relationship between the two entities to not be limited to discussions of best practices only, but to also allow for the transfer of data in relation to investigations of manipulation in sports competitions,” said MGA sports integrity manager Antonio Zerafa.
“Undoubtedly, this further strengthens the MGA’s commitment to assisting sports governing bodies in their fight against match-fixing.”
