covid19.
While all of Europe and the rest of the world has been strongly impacted by the COVID 19 outbreak, the CSCF Foundation for Sport Integrity  took actions very rapidly to face the consequences on its activities. First of all employees’ security was ensured by working from home, and suspending all travels. The main ongoing projects to prevent manipulation in sports and match-fixing are affected: Integrisport Erasmus+, designed to support law enforcement agencies and judicial authorities, and Integriball Erasmus+ aimed at raising awareness and protecting grassroots (U16-18) and Women’s football players. The partners were consulted and informed about the necessary changes to the schedule:
  • for Integrisport Erasmus +, we have postponed two of our awareness raising sessions to Autumn 2020 (in the Slovak Republic and in the Netherlands);
  • for Integriball Erasmus+, we have postponed the fact-finding missions, and more globally the initial research phase leading to the first experts’ meeting. All implementation phase activities are foreseen towards Autumn 2020.
The CSCF remains in close contact with all the partners, via e-mail and teleconferences, as well as with the EU Agency that funds the Erasmus + programme.
CSCF is a non-profit organization that works to protect sport from negative aspects including manipulations in sport, corruption and fraud. The main activities of the foundation are to provide education and consulting. The aim of the foundation is to encourage respected and experienced experts to share their experiences and raise awareness on sports corruption with athletes, sport officials, law enforcement, governmental officers and judiciary.
