Once again, the Play Fair Code was invited to partner the UEFA for education reasons. This time to bring in its expertise in the course of the UEFA Academy Football Integrity Programme. The prominent staffed convention was held between January 27th and 31st at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon.

Play Fair Code at the UEFA FIP Winter School

Play Fair Code CEO Severin Moritzer was a panelist at the Education & prevention roundtable discussing the significance of preventive training measures in the international counter-match-fixing efforts together with Roy Vermeer (FIFPro), Daan de Jong (ECA), Miguel Maduro (European University Institute) und Samir Arab (Football player, Malta) and moderated by UEFA Integrity Officer Nicholas Raudenski.

Both the legal experts of the worldwide representative organization for professional footballers (FIFPro) as well as the representing-body for the interests of the professional European football clubs (ECA), the former Advocate General at the European Court of Justice and the Maltese football pro Samir Arab, who recently completed a long-time ban for breaches against the Code of ethics (failure to report), agreed with Moritzer that face-to-face contact with the players combined with an interactive and highly practice-based training-approach is the most valuable way to raise awareness and to impart recommended behavior-patterns.

“It is an honor to once again experience the reputation established by the Play Fair Code internationally over the past years. Throughout the UEFA Winter School we have been encouraged in our approach from all sides, and of course we are happy to share our experience and expertise with the UEFA integrity officers. Congrats to the UEFA and Nick Raudenski.”, Severin Moritzer outlined after the event.
