FIFA Global Integrity Programme
Welcome to the FIFA Global Integrity Programme webpage. In the video below, FIFA President Gianni Infantino introduces the programme and explains why promoting and protecting the integrity of football competitions is so important.
In line with FIFA’s vision to make football truly global, the FIFA Global Integrity Programme aims to provide Integrity Officers within FIFA’s member associations all around the world with an in-depth understanding of the scourge of match manipulation and ways or measures to tackle it effectively.
The programme, developed in collaboration with the UNODC, will deliver the knowledge and tools needed to prevent and fight match manipulation as well as to promote integrity by setting up successful and sustainable initiatives at member association level. Furthermore, it will provide insight into how to conduct investigations into match manipulation incidents by means of practical examples. The programme will also serve as an opportunity for Integrity Officers to share experiences and best practices between one another.
The programme will be structured in three core modules and organised regionally, with a dedicated edition for each confederation across 2021 and 2022. The programme will kick off with the AFC edition in March 2021, followed by CONMEBOL as of April, Concacaf from August and CAF starting in September, and will continue in 2022 with the editions for the OFC and UEFA. Due to the restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the programme will be delivered in a digital format.
FIFA, in coordination with every confederation, will follow up individually with each member association’s integrity officer prior to the start of the respective edition.
