FIFA subsidiary Early Warning System GmbH (EWS) and CONCACAF have extended a monitoring service agreement to protect the integrity of football as of 17 July 2014.
EWS will continue working together with CONCACAF to tackle the threat to the integrity of football in the region by providing CONCACAF with its services, know-how and technical facilities. EWS will monitor betting markets for irregularities and analyse specific match situations. If its analysis indicates strong grounds for suspecting match-fixing, EWS will alert CONCACAF. The partnership started in 2013.
As an ethical project, EWS forms an integral component of FIFA’s integrity initiative and supports CONCACAF first and foremost in the areas of prevention, risk management and information gathering.
