Spain’s Consejo Superior del Deporte (CSD) – the high council of sports governance – has confirmed that its membership body will track all sporting events using the “Alert System”, operated by DGOJ, Spain’s federal gambling regulator.

The new development builds on a new cooperative agreement between the CSD and DGOJ, with the objective of preventing fraud across all tiers of Spanish sports.

As a result of the arrangement, all CSD syndicated events and competitions will be added to the DGOJ’s integrity network, in order for the membership of the former to track betting threats and irregularities.

A joint statement from the partners read: “The Alert System aims to protect participants in the betting market against fraudulent practices that, by altering the results of a sporting event, end up seriously distorting their participation in the game.”

The DGOJ welcomed the CSD agreement as a vital partnership for its integrity unit and its remit in safeguarding Spanish sports against betting threats and criminal activities.
