Football and tennis accounted for 56 percent of all 3Q alerts.

The 50 incidents of suspicious betting in 3Q concerned eight sports, across 21 countries and five continents. Other key data for 3Q23 includes:

  • The 50 alerts reported in 3Q23 are a decrease of 41 percent when compared to the 3Q total for 2022, which saw 85 alerts.
  • Tennis had the highest number of alerts with 15 in 3Q23, representing a 7 percent increase on the 14 alerts reported in 2Q and a 55 percent decrease on the 33 reported in 3Q22. 
  • Football (soccer) accounted for 13 alerts, a 32 percent decrease on the 19 cases reported in 2Q. 
  • Europe, with 30 alerts, made up 60 percent of the total reported, followed by South America with 7 alerts (14 percent). 

Khalid Ali, IBIA CEO, said: “The quarter saw a continued reduction in alerts with a more than 30 percent decrease in the first three quarters relative to 2022, with tennis a major contributory factor. During the quarter, IBIA and the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) co-hosted a best practice integrity seminar in New York with many of the premier sports and betting operators in the US. That cross-sector cooperative approach underlines the strength of our relationship with tennis, as acknowledged by the ITIA, and our shared commitment to working in partnership to combat corruption in that sport.”
