Integrity Material Explained
FIFA has produced a number of materials designed to support its member associations and the confederations in developing and implementing their own integrity initiatives at national and/or regional level.

The following support materials are intended to be used as part of a wider effort to promote integrity and protect football matches and competitions from manipulation:
Enabling and empowering FIFA’s member associations and the confederations to create and implement their own integrity initiatives, as well as supporting them in such endeavours, is vital for the promotion of integrity and the prevention of match manipulation worldwide. Therefore, FIFA has developed this practical handbook in order to provide member associations with a guide on how to build and/or strengthen their own integrity initiatives.
