Zurich and London based betting group Samvo has announced that it has joined up with FIFA's Early Warning System GmbH in order to help protect the integrity of the sport of football.
The Early Warning System was put into place by FIFA in 2005. The EWS has more than 400 betting groups that work with FIFA's own monitoring system to help detect and prevent fraud.
Commenting on the partnership, Samvo General Manager Ms. Tang said: "Like FIFA, Samvo is 100% committed to upholding the integrity of sport and takes a zero tolerance approach to any individuals or groups trying to manipulate football matches in order to perpetrate betting fraud. We are proud to join the ranks of socially responsible bookmakers that are now collaborating with EWS and FIFA to achieve this goal."
