Home game for the Play Fair Code at the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship Qualification Tournament

Years of cooperation with the Austrian Football Association and UEFA guarantee a high level of information, awareness raising and education quality to alert young athletes to the risks of match-fixing.

Young players from Russia, Latvia, Montenegro and Austria were sensitized by Play Fair Code CEO Severin Moritzer beginning of October as part of the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship Qualification Tournament.

The phenomenon match-fixing, the mechanisms of criminal approaches and the individual consequences for the career and the personal development of the players were discussed in detail on the basis of numerous case studies. Specific attention that things are real was drawn to the fact that their own games within the tournament were all offered on the betting markets and by various online-based betting operators.

Severin Moritzer – CEO of the Play Fair Code: "It is highly important to discuss the facts, cases and consequences in detail with the young players. Match-fixing is not an abstract idea, it is real and can affect every single player."
