With the aim of sharing information, intelligence and best practices in tackling competition manipulation and related corruption in sport, the Olympic Movement Unit on the Prevention of the Manipulation of Competitions (OM Unit PMC) has facilitated the creation of the “Sports Investigators Network”.
The network has over 200 trained Sports Investigators. These experts are independent from the IOC and come principally from International and National Sports Federations, National Olympic Committees or sports disciplinary bodies responsible for investigating wrongdoing in sport linked to the manipulation of competitions. All have received training through the IOC-INTERPOL Capacity Building Investigator’s Training.
The “Sports Investigators Network” is a non-commercial initiative that is managed by the OM Unit PMC and linked to its constituents and similar networks, including INTERPOL’s Match-Fixing Task Force, EUROPOL and the Group of Copenhagen. Members of the list are accessible on request by partners of the OM Unit PMC.
