Genoa participate in football integrity workshop
The players and coaches of Genoa football club have taken part in an anti-match-fixing workshop run by sports-betting data suppliers Sportradar.
Held at the Serie A side’s club museum, the Betting Integrity and Anti-match-fixing Workshop helped educate first team and youth players as well as coaching staff about the dangers of match-fixing.
Participants were made aware of the rules and regulations relating to betting and match-fixing as well as the penalties for breaching them.
The workshop, which was supported by Italian betting firm and Genoa sponsors IziPlay, was followed by a panel session discussion and press conference.
Genoa CEO Alessandro Zarbano said: “With this project we have implemented a preventative approach with a clear education aspect in order to make the participants aware of the dangers and risks of match-fixing.”
Sportradar international integrity manager Marcello Presilla added: “Genoa CFC must be highly commended for recognising the severity of the dangers of match-fixing and tackling the issue pro-actively.”
