Gambling in American sport: How to manage the increased integrity risk


This interactive webinar will discuss the current state of the sports betting integrity framework in the USA and contrast this with markets such as the UK, Europe and Australia. With the American sports gambling market opening up it presents new opportunities for sports organisations to increase their commercial revenue. However, with this new opportunity comes the increased integrity threat to sports organisations as well as their player, coaches and staff.
