"It is in the nature of prevention measures that they must never be stopped," says Severin Moritzer, referring to the integrity workshops of the (three-pronged) Austrian third football league.

Regional leagues trained for the second time

After the clubs of the Eastern Division had been visited and trained in the previous year, current efforts in 2020 focused on the Central Division and the Western Division. This was the second series already. By mid-October, all 16 clubs of the Central Division have been sensitized for the risks and challenges of betting-issues and match-fixing. As for the Western Division all Tyrolean and Salzburgian teams are up to date. Due to the pandemic the schedule in Vorarlberg was tight so that the last remaining appointments with the  "Ländle"-clubs will probably be postponed to early 2021.

“The content was extremely interesting and informative,” says Juan Bohensky, chairman of FC Wels, “and we will continue to focus on the issue of integrity in sport.” Georg “Gogo” Saringer, coach of SC Schwaz, agrees and adds: “Thanks for a lively workshop! With a clear and easy presentation, Markus Sukdolak from the Play Fair Code explained such complex subject plausibly and simply.” The Play Fair Code gladly reciprocates the thanks and praise: “We are pleased that all participants worked deticatedly on our issues. This creates real added value,” says Sukdolak. This is of special importance in a league that is an interface between grassrouts and professional sport.
