MGA and BWF sign data-sharing agreement
The Malta Gaming Authority has signed a data-sharing agreement with the Badminton World Federation Integrity Unit to enhance monitoring of suspicious betting activity in the sport.
The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the Badminton World Federation (BWF) Integrity Unit have signed a data-sharing agreement aimed at improving the monitoring of suspicious betting activity in the sport.
The Integrity Unit manages anti-doping and anti-match fixing programmes and conducts awareness, education, and deterrence actions in the badminton community.
Under the agreement, the MGA will share data with the BWF Integrity Unit on player information and match details for investigation into suspected match manipulation.
The agreement is expected to act as a deterrent to potential corruptors of the sport as the MGA helps to facilitate the sharing of data between betting operators and the BWF Integrity Unit.
