The third Workshop in this year’s series took place at the Ebbe Schwartz Meeting Room at UEFA HQ in Nyon, Switzerland.


Integrity Officers from Andorra, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Wales, Poland, Israel, Rep of Ireland, Bosnia-Herzogovina and Malta attended this two-day event which was co-ordinated by Uefa’s Disciplinary unit.


Emilio Garcia Uefa’s, Head of Disciplinary and Integrity matters, Graham Peaker Uefa’s, Intelligence Coordinator, and Urs Kluser, Uefa’s Integrity Officer, conducted the meeting during which recent developments were explained. Initial discussion centred on the MoU signed by Europol and Uefa and also the Council of Europe Convention against the manipulation of sports.


Various case studies, best practices, challenges and recommendations were the main points discussed by the Integrity Officers. Some went into some detail about the methods being adopted in their respective country. The BFDS “classification” came under review, with some countries having more reports than the overall average. The system itself was discussed and technical details about its operating methods were explained.


The implementation of Uefa’s Integrity Resolution which was signed at the 38th Ordinary Congress earlier this year, came under review and recommendation for some improvements.  The Uefa App, which is available for download on IOS and Android platforms, was demonstrated. This App offers the facility for anyone to access it and comment on integrity instances in anonymity.


Feedback from the Integrity Officers was important for those present to share information and ideas. This further strengthened the excellent networking among them.
