To comment on the data for the year 2021, the CEO of the International Betting Integrity Association, Khalid Ali, pointed out that 2021 was a challenging year for the sports betting industry, as it had to deal with the specter of Covid-19.

Another challenging year for the sector has passed with the spectre of COVID and its impact on sporting events declining, and hopefully a potential endgame in sight."
In addition, Khalid took the opportunity to analyze that the growth of sporting events and the establishment of integrity protocols were essential to maintain the integrity of the sport and to prevent irregular betting in the sector. In his speech, the CEO of IBIA reported that the "Challenges however persist, notably with the growth of private sports events and establishing integrity protocols to the levels seen in traditional sports bodies. The association is working with a number of stakeholders in this area to improve integrity provisions".
Therefore, Ali also took the opportunity to comment that the dangers of "corruption in betting remain and, as the Optimum Betting Market report published last year highlighted, this equates to about $25 million a year in lost revenue for the betting industry. globally regulated".
The IBIA CEO concluded by saying: "It is therefore welcome that the requirement for operators to be part of an integrity monitoring system have gathered pace across the US, and have been endorsed in Sweden, to add to existing requirements in the Netherlands, Germany, and the Czech Republic. The approach in Ontario is particularly worthy of attention and is a best practice model. The association looks forward to working with a wider range of operators on integrity as a result."
