Event description
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Institute of Fraud Auditors organizes a conference on Integrity and Fraud in Sports.

About this event

Theme of the day: “Sports: integrity and fraud”

By bringing together representatives of sports associations, international sports experts, fraud investigators, law firms, prosecutors and other stakeholders, the Institute of Fraud Auditors (IFA) aims to set the scene to launch the social debate on Integrity and Fraud with Sports.

The virtues of sports are widely recognized. Some recent scandals revealed however that there is also a dark side. On top of that, the pandemic has put a large financial pressure on professional and amateur sports clubs which will seduce managers of sports club to gradually and unconsciously move towards the dark side.

Creating transparency and increasing awareness of the (personal) risks is the basis to move towards integrity in sports. IFA wants to play an active role in creating awareness and providing guidance on 'Integrity and Fraud Prevention in Sports'. The conference will be the official kick-off for this initiative.
