The project Integrity Against Match-fixing – IAM aims to fight match-fixing through education for young athletes aged 14-16 years old. The core idea of our project is to fight this international contemporary threat facing sport through education among young athletes in order to preserve transparency, fair-play and respect for others at the earliest level of sport activity. The challenges posed by the manipulation of matches need today a strong cooperation at European and international level in order to protect the future of sport as well as its ethics and integrity.
The core activities of the project will be:
1. Desk research concerning the current situation, knowledge and understanding about match-fixing at international level.
2. Field research with a focus on the target groups in each partner country.
3. Implementation of interactive workshops for young athletes, explaining them the importance of fair-play on and off the field.
