As part of the Macolin Week events, the “Sports Competitions Manipulation in the digital era: better addressing it together” conference was held on 19 October 2022, co-organised by the Council of Europe and UEFA, with the assistance of IOC and INTERPOL. The conference welcomed the Group of Copenhagen’s National Platforms, the sport movement, public authorities, data brokers and social media representatives, which had an opportunity to learn about and exchange on the recent trends in the field of sports competitions manipulation with a particular focus on social media platforms.

Today unfortunately social media platforms are widely (mis)used to approach players and referees for match-fixing purposes with sophisticated techniques. It was an eye-opener to all participants to hear from each other’s experiences, practical cases and existing policies. Real opportunities emerged for further discussions and improved prevention efforts. The conference was regarded as a milestone for future cooperation between public authorities and private partners.
