The Council of Europe launched KCOOS+ in 2018 to support public authorities and national actors involved in the fight against the manipulation of sports competitions. It is intended to accompany legislative, institutional and professional actors wishing to align themselves with the objectives and values of the Macolin Convention.


The KCOOS+ project is fully funded by voluntary contributions provided by: Australia (Department of Health), Cyprus (Cyprus Sports Organisation), Denmark (Ministry of Culture), France (ARJEL, FDJ, Ministère des Sports, NOC), Norway (Ministry of Culture) and Switzerland (Office fédéral du sport -OFSPO), as well as by the World Lotteries Association and the European Lotteries.






The project, also supported by EUROPOL, FIFA, GLMS, INTERPOL, IOC and UEFA, has developed a practical framework for bringing together multi-sector expertise to:


  • Provide targeted assistance to national actors, including the creation and development of their National Platforms and the implementation of national strategies;
  • Address the complex themes of the fight against manipulation from a regional perspective (so far in Europe, the Pacific and Africa).


In addition, KCOOS+ is implementing the tools developed within the framework of the Network of National Platforms (Group of Copenhagen).
