FIFA Found No Signs of Manipulation in Gambling for the Women’s World Cup

With the successful completion of competition evaluation, the FIFA ad hoc Integrity Panel appointed to oversee the 2023 Women’s World Cup and related gambling has completed its work.

The Betting Integrity Service confirmed that there were no suspicious behavior alerts throughout the tournament. During the 64 matches played in Australia and New Zealand, there were no attempts to manipulate matches or other similar threats.

Collaborating through a network of designated representatives from international crime-fighting organizations such as the FBI, Interpol, Sport Integrity Australia and the New Zealand Police, the task force took a centralized approach to analyze all the data generated from the betting monitoring reports. This analysis included observation of both physical sites and other sources of information, which led to the final conclusions.

The working group of the football body was formed for the first time ahead of the 2019 Women’s World Cup final. Since then, it has been collaborating with various stakeholders to purposefully counter the illegal gaming activities associated with the event.
