CSCF Sport

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.

CSCF puts great emphasis to find and request only the most respected and experienced experts of the fields of interest. The requested experts are well recognized in area of law enforcement, sport integrity, betting and cyberspace at operational an strategic level. We believe that sports- and the athletes in particular, are vulnerable to the manipulation of sport competitions; they need external assistance to protect themselves. We also believe that law enforcement and governmental officers, prosecutors and judges need to receive adequate awareness on these very specific crimes committed in field of sport.

Education

Within the framework of customized training, the participants are introduced to the law enforcement perspective of the manipulation of sports competitions and sports corruption; the criminal offences committed by fixers in relation with/behind sport events; the way athletes and sport officials may encounter and handle sport manipulation and the fixers; the basics of sports betting and awareness of sport ethics and integrity to grassroots level

Advice to sport and governmental sectors

Our foundation provides advice to clients, allowing them to evaluate their situation concerning questions related to in match fixing, manipulation in sports and corruption in sport. We can run enquiries and studies regarding the situation within our clients’ relevant jurisdiction.

We offer expertise to law enforcement agencies and judicial authorities in order to support procedures launched that may have links to investigating sport manipulation cases.

Collaborative partnerships

We believe that the most effective manner to protect the integrity of sport is through a coordinated effort, pooling together ideas from different perspectives towards a single goal. That is why our foundation is open to collaborative partnerships on various topics related to sport ethics and integrity, at national or transnational level across sports.

Our vision is to provide support, knowledge and expertise on combiting sports manipulations, money laundering and the abuse of virtual currencies to stakeholders in the relevant area...
