JapanThe Japan Sport Council (JSC) today held an “integrity of sport” Symposium in Tokyo in order to promote awareness of various threats to the integrity of sport supported by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Recently the JSC has launched its Sport Integrity Unit, which acts in the areas of fight against doping, harassment and match manipulation in sport, and promotion of good governance among sport organizations in Japan. The JSC will work in cooperation with the FIFA for protecting the integrity of sport. As the first action of the JSC-FIFA agreement, the symposium, attended by around 350 people including sports officials, lawyers, business people, academics and students, took place in order to spread the awareness of potential and existing threats toward sport such as violence, racism, harassment, doping, match fixing, lack of governance and corruption. FIFA also provided a video message from Mr. Ralf Mutschke, FIFA Security Director, who introduced the FIFA Integrity Initiative, a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to fight against match manipulation in football.
