FIFA has taken a crucial step by launching an awareness campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to enable member association, main governing body and confederations to understand the grave consequences of match-fixing.
This campaign serves as a building bridge among the people involved in football. Under the name of “integrity program,” FIFA has introduced a new handbook along with an e-learning platform to stop match manipulation.
A statement by the Football World Cup organizer said, “FIFA and its dedicated Integrity Department have developed several updated and new integrity resources to be used and implemented by key stakeholders across football.”
Furthermore, the sole purpose of this thoughtfully chalked plan is to monitor the integrity of the match. Similar implementations were carried out in the World Cup in Russia, 2018 and Women’s World Cup in Franc, 2019.
It is worth mentioning that FIFA seems determined to keep football matches as fair as possible. This is why a series of promotional material was posted on their official Facebook page. The promotional series, with power-pack slogans like “Keep it clean” has delivered the message loud and clear that FIFA has opted for zero-tolerance policy when it comes to match manipulation.
