The affect upon the licensed gambling industry has been no different in that regard, opening new product platforms and access to a wider consumer base. International and national sporting bodies seek to control the betting product and to obtain increased revenues from licensed gambling operators that offer betting on sporting events. In some jurisdictions there are fears that the introduction of new betting licensing regimes will serve to reduce the income that sports currently receive from state gambling monopolies.
The professional sporting movement has been particularly proactive in pressing its case through various forums where the focus has been on the promotion of sport. As such, there must be a serious risk that the policy considerations of these issues have not been balanced or properly informed. The consultation sought to obtain information regarding the basis of the commercial arguments present by sports and to consider the existing integrity mechanisms Overall, the response was limited both in number and in the information advanced, notably in relation to the professional sporting sector.
There is, however, considerable material within the public domain that provided more than sufficient information for a detailed assessment of the legal, commercial and integrity aspects surround the sports betting debate The European Commission has rightly determined that sport is subject to EU competition law and internal market provisions in so far as it constitutes an economic activity with the specificity of sport being assessed on a case by case basis , and has rejected a general exemption as proposed by the Independent European Sport Review, funded by UEFA EU case law provides that gambling is a service and subject to the application of the Treaty, notably Articles 49 and 56 TFEU ex Art.
The Database Directive and judgements surrounding its application to sporting data such as fixtures lists, determined that this data amounts to creation and not investment, which does not fall within the scope of the protection of the Directive. This means that this potential source of revenue for professional sports can be nowhere near as high as they would like, or in some cases, had expected prior to the ECJ s ruling in BHB v.
William Hill. It is worth noting that the latter provides 3. The assertion that licensed gambling operators exploit the sporting product and should pay additional revenues as a result does not recognize that many other products also seek to associate themselves and exploit sports to profit However, those businesses are not pursued for a greater contribution to the sporting sector, or control over their commercial products or trading practices.
It must be underlined that the licensed gambling sector pays everything it is legally obliged to pay to sport and invests substantial funding over and above that amount, primarily in the form of sponsorship and joint ventures with sporting bodies In FIFA, UEFA and the IOC had combined revenue streams that amounted to over 4bn effectively tax free with the five major European football leagues accounting for another 7.
In addition to this, sport and its participants receive numerous fiscal advantages through State aid and taxation measures, and use, or are located in, offshore tax havens This is not a criticism of any tax efficient policies or preferential tax treatments that are employed or enjoyed by sporting organisations, but it does bring into question the public attacks that have been made by some sporting representatives on online gambling companies who choose to base themselves in jurisdictions providing comparable taxation regimes The argument presented by sports that a new EU wide statutory mechanism is required to permit sports greater control over the betting product and to enforce additional payments from licensed gambling operators does not appear to be valid, necessary or proportionate There is ample income within the professional sporting sector, which is markedly more affluent than the betting industry, to fund both integrity and grassroots sport.
Whether or not that sporting income is currently being distributed in a fair manner through its various solidarity mechanisms is an issue for each sport to determine and not for this report to examine With regard to the integrity of sport, again professional sporting bodies seek control over the operation of the commercial betting product.
Sport has determined that sports betting, or more specifically certain types of bets, make it more susceptible to corrupt activities and a result that sports should have control of betting and, as a minimum, receive integrity payments from licensed gambling operators that offer betting products on sporting events Unfortunately, corrupt activities do occur in sport betting and non betting related. Those operators have also invested considerable resources in establishing integrity mechanisms that seek to detect and deter corruption in sport linked to betting All of these are important ingredients in a joint effort by both industries to protect the sporting and betting products, but which have been principally promoted by licensed gambling operators.
Indeed, licensed gambling operators have a particular commercial interest in ensuring that the sporting product, and by association, the betting product are not corrupted. It is fundamental to understand that the European licensed gambling industry is the likely victim of any fraud that is perpetrated and in no sense can it fairly be described as the polluter This protection is, however, predicated on the establishment and enforcement of suitable rules by sports and their ability to act promptly when receiving information from gambling operators.
There are some good examples within sport, but the vast majority declined to provide their betting rules as part of this study; the overall position is therefore unclear. The establishment of such information sharing arrangements with the RGA formed a particular aspect of this report s consultation, yet of the sporting bodies invited to discuss establishing an MoU, only 2 responded positively With regard to suggestions that the commercial sporting sector should have control of the betting product, again it has to be determined if the argument presented is valid and the action necessary and proportionate.
The evidence strongly demonstrates that it is not As the British Gambling Commission has rightly pointed out, there would need to be a very strong evidencebased justification to introduce and enforce statutory licensing regulations that would essentially be a restriction on trade There is no available evidence to suggest that restricting bet types would prove an effective mechanism to ensuring a significantly increased level of protection for sport in a global market when the very people that constitute the threat are the very ones that would not be bound by such licensing or contractual restrictions What is self evident is that both the sporting and the licensed gambling industries have a common objective in safeguarding the integrity of sporting events, especially when the examples of serious corruption tend to point to the activities of organised crime groups and unlicensed betting operations which are commonly based outside of Europe Given the 3.
As they are confidential they do not form part of this publicly available report. In doing so, the views of the principal stakeholders have been taken into account. As such, it has been completed with a large degree of independence and without any bias. The Remote Gambling Association 2. As such, they represent many of the preeminent organisations in the field of global online gambling.
It is a condition of membership that all operators be licensed for gambling in Europe. Some members also provide other interactive betting channels, notably via the telephone, and extensive and multi jurisdiction retail gaming and betting services With regard to the latter, RGA members make up a large part of the retail betting markets in the United Kingdom UK and Ireland, and a number of outlets throughout mainland Europe in jurisdictions that license such operations. RGA membership also includes the largest betting exchange in the world and the leading global providers of gambling software amongst its stock market listed and privately owned companies The organisation s members consequently represent many of the foremost global and multi platform licensed gambling businesses.
The RGA, and its membership, is therefore an important stakeholder in the international gambling market and has a significant interest in the development of relevant commercial and regulatory policies in these areas These policies can have profound affects on the financial position of large multi national corporations and the continued employment of an international workforce numbering tens of thousands. That in turn can also have financial affects on related markets, such as the sports sector, the financial outlay that operators attribute, and the promotion of sporting events.
The debate has permeated into political mechanisms at all levels: state; national; and international. The professional sports movement has been particularly proactive in pressing the debate and promoting its views in these areas However, neither the RGA, nor the wider licensed gambling industry, has been invited to participate in many of the detailed discussions that have taken place, notably those that have increasingly been undertaken in sporting forums and discussions with policymakers.
As such, it could be argued that these debates have been somewhat incomplete in content and nature This report has been produced in order to inform the consideration of the issues by the RGA and its members. In doing so it has taken account of the comments, notably from sporting organisations and representatives of some national and state governments within the EU, regarding the impact of sports betting and the contribution made by licensed gambling operators towards the integrity and the financing of professional sport In endeavouring to respond in a constructive manner, it was determined that this study should seek to engage with all of the key stakeholders and to explore the opinions and concerns advanced.
The validity of those opinions and the establishment of additional mechanisms, noting the industry s existing legal, commercial and integrity responsibilities, could then be addressed in relation to the issues surrounding betting on sports This report has been completed on that basis and in line with the Terms of Reference see Figure 2. Figure 2. To explore the principal challenges arising from the availability of betting on sport; 2.
Engage with key stakeholders to elicit views and consider the validity of those opinions; 3. Produce a report detailing the key issues, notably, but not exclusively, within the European Union EU ; 4. Provide recommendations on how best to meet any issues and challenges; and 5.
Complete this work within a six month period mid June to mid December In seeking to meet all of the Terms of Reference, this report focuses on the key areas of the legal, commercial and integrity issues affecting betting on sport. There is particular coverage of related EU issues, although references and comparisons are made within this document to the wider international landscape Noting the above, the project was split into four distinct phases: development of approach; written consultation; oral consultation; and production of the report see Figure 2.
The results of that consultation process are provided in the following chapter To that end, selected organisations with an interest in the issues under discussion were contacted and invited to respond to one of four questionnaires tailored to specific sectors. However, the consultation was open to any party that wished to engage in this process and the questionnaires were freely available from the RGA s website The consultation was publicised via a number of sports and gambling related online media channels.
The written consultation, along with existing publicly available source material, formed the basis of subsequent oral discussions. Those discussions were held with a broad range of stakeholders, and where those organisations were willing to participate All detailed responses to the written and oral consultations, and the contribution of those sources, have been gratefully received.
The information gleaned from those exercises has made a significant contribution to the contents of this report, and ultimately to the scope and nature of the conclusions see Chapter 7 and proposed recommendations to the RGA The remarks attributed to licensed gambling operators are not confined to the activities of RGA members; the report considers and references the impact of the wider online and retail licensed gambling sectors and the industry s interrelationship with the professional sporting sector, notably within Europe, but also to a lesser degree at a global level It should also be noted that a wide range of source material has contributed to the content and findings of this report, and citations are contained in the footnotes.
Particular emphasis has been placed on the publicly available documentation produced by European institutions and sporting organisations in recent years The report has been produced with the principal aim of providing the RGA with an evidence based resource from which to consider its future approach to sports betting issues. However, it is hoped that it will also make a useful contribution towards the wider sports betting debate and any subsequent policy discussions As this report has been written during the latter half of , figures for that year have been calculated using the average for the first ten months of the year.
All figures prior to and including , have been calculated using the average exchange rate for that year, and all estimated figures for and after , at the rate This has principally involved: US dollars; pounds sterling; and euros. It should also be noted that different jurisdictions have different financial years and that the figures have been used in relation to annual reports may vary accordingly.
In addition, where figures were already available or had been re calculated in euros by the authors of other documentation, the figures have been accepted at those rates and may again show a slight variation to the rates listed above. All reasonable efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of all of the figures.
The impact upon the gambling industry has been no different in that regard, opening new product platforms and access to a wider consumer base a fuller account of the growth of those new technologies is contained in the Appendices section of this document Telephone betting has been in place for some considerable time; however widespread availability of computers and mobile phones has seen increasing global internet access and broadband penetration.
Through these technologies, e commerce has become ever present and a routine modern day activity It has also created a highly competitive market place, both between other interactive gambling companies, the long unchallenged pre eminence of the retail sector, and fiscal measures between jurisdictions, all of which has considerably benefited consumers but which has also challenged the viability of national laws primarily based on physical boundaries The sports betting market is but one of numerous products that licensed gambling operators can provide.
Some seek to offer a variety of these products, whilst others seek to focus on offering a particular gambling service. FIFA Modern technology, and especially the opportunities for sports betting via the internet, represents an insidious danger to the integrity of the game. In addition, FIFA s 55th Ordinary Congress in Marrakech on 11 and 12 September , concluded that a special task force be set up to consider these issues in more detail and determine appropriate actions and solutions The FIFA Task Force For the Good of the Game began work in November with a view to formulating proposals in readiness for a meeting in early , which included a separate event specifically on illegal betting.
Lord Faulkner, a member of the British House of Lords and author of a report about betting on sport, was enlisted as a specialist In March , a Task Force directive determined that every player, official and match official would be required to sign a declaration before the World Cup, pledging not to take part in betting of any kind in connection with the FIFA World Cup matches. Chaired by Lord Sebastian Coe, it met for the first time in October , with the objective of protecting and promoting the integrity and transparency of world football.
It is only right football obtains its fair share of income from betting. The latter agreed an Ethics Resolution to consider, amongst other issues: match fixing; corruption; and illegal betting. Blatter: Drawing the line May 9 fifa. To that end the body shares best practice, raises awareness of issues affecting sports, and encourages sports to take joint action to protect and promote their rights As such it seeks recognition from Governments across the world, and effective protection for their rights under law.
That includes, the creation of a regime for sports betting that enables sport to protect its integrity, and establishes a fair return to sports for the use of their events by betting operators The organisation presently has around 40 members across a range of sports. It has strongly supported the European Parliament s Report on the Integrity of Online Gambling, which recommended the protection of sporting events from unauthorised commercial use, and the French draft law proposals to require an agreement between a sporting event organiser and a French licensed online betting operator before betting can take place on that event SROC continues to lobby European institutions and Member States to establish additional statutory mechanisms to deliver what it determines to be a fair return for use of the sporting product by gambling operators.
Independent European Sport Review October 2. As such, the report can be said to have a degree of credibility both within sport and various European political mechanisms It was initially devised to assess issues affecting the modern football environment within Europe, particularly the EU, and the implementation of the principles of the European Council s Nice Declaration of regarding the special nature of sport see Chapter 3 Whilst still principally focused on football, the contents and recommendations of the final document published in October were deemed to encapsulate the general issues facing European sport.
European Commission Competition law and Internal Market provisions apply to sport in so far as it constitutes an economic activity It also invited Member States to reflect upon how best to maintain and develop a sustainable financing model for giving long term support to sports organisations, 29 and committed to a study on the financing sport including gambling income The White Paper also notes that a growing part of the economic value of sports is linked to intellectual property rights, but again there is no specific action in this area.
Some sports and Member States expressed some disappointment with the White Paper, notably its conclusion surrounding the specificity of sport see Chapter 4 , namely that sport is subject to the application of EU law, and that a general exemption for sport from law was not justified Sports betting has increasingly been an issue for discussion between Member States and sporting organisations, both within and outside of European sports forums.
The Biarritz Declaration agreed by Sports Ministers during the French Presidency of the EU committed the European Commission to regular dialogue with the international sports movement, and betting both the integrity and the fair return argument has been an issue during those deliberations Discussion regarding sports betting appears to be gathering momentum in this sports forum and, with a competence for sport albeit supporting and the associated dedicated funding and more formal role for sport in Commission policies with ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, there is good reason to suppose that sports will heighten their activity via this platform.
European Parliament 2. In addition, it noted the practical and legal limitations of proposed methods to block online service provision, and that the report does not adequately reflect the position in all Member States. Council of Europe 2. The 11th Council of Europe Conference of Ministers responsible for Sport, held in Athens in December , agreed a resolution that invites the Council, through its Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport EPAS , to consider: match fixing; corruption; and illegal betting The resolution proposes that the Council s EPAS draw up a new draft recommendation to [Member] States on corruption, match fixing and illegal betting which could form the basis of a possible new convention on these subjects to help achieve integrity controls and a fair return to sport for grassroots funding as regards betting European Commission White Paper on Sport July 30 European Commission White Paper on Sport July 31 Council of Europe Sports Ministerial Ethics Resolution December It is a global.

The author Jason Foley-Train updates the report he produced while on secondment to the betting industry from the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport DCMS to explore not just match-fixing but the associated commercial and integrity matters that have gained prominence in the interim period. The report is a comprehensive and evidence-based resource and analysis that provides a vital insight into the important symbiotic commercial and integrity relationship between the sporting and betting sectors.
It also highlights how the growing global sports betting market has led policymakers within national and transnational institutions to be drawn into a complex commercial and integrity debate. I very much hope that this report will go a long way towards educating opinion formers of the facts of the situation, strengthening their knowledge base and ultimately providing a foundation for progress.

One approach is to require customers to physically visit casinos to prove their identity and age before being allowed to place mobile wagers. States that have such requirements include Iowa. Different states have established a wide variety of minimum reserve requirements.
In Arkansas, Nevada and Washington, D. Iowa and New York require a reserve in the amount necessary to cover the outstanding sports wagering liability. In contrast, neither Delaware, Pennsylvania nor Rhode Island has promulgated a required minimum reserve amount.
One interesting aspect of the varying regulations relates to bets on collegiate sports within the respective states. For example, in Arkansas, a customer must physically place a wager on Arkansas collegiate teams at the casino; mobile wagers on Arkansas collegiate teams are forbidden. New Jersey has a similar prohibition, although it is waived in instances of multi-state collegiate tournaments as long as at least one site is outside the state of New Jersey. By contrast, states such as Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsylvania and West Virginia have no restrictions on collegiate wagering.
They do recognize certain issues inherent in college sports, however. We have accommodated them as best we could. One of the things they were concerned about were prop bets that individual players could affect. Accordingly, I wrote a letter to the casinos prohibiting them from offering prop bets. In addition, most jurisdictions prohibit participants in athletic events from placing wagers.
In most instances, operators are prohibited from accepting wagers from players or coaches that they know or reasonably should know are participants. The operators are required to take reasonable steps to prevent the circumvention of the requirement. New Jersey goes further, requiring the registration of any employees of sports governing bodies or its member teams prior to allowing such employee to place any sports wagers. Nevada has promulgated specific MICS relating to racing and sports wagering.
The MICS are very detailed in their requirements, and outline required compliance for virtually all aspects of a sports wagering operation, with the MICS rules running nearly 20 pages. States across the U. The predominant practice has been to allow each operator to develop its own house rules. The regulations governing house rules typically require that they address the amounts to be paid on winning wagers, the effect of schedule changes, the redemption period for winning tickets and the method of noticing odds or line changes to patrons, and state that wagers may be accepted at other than the currently posted terms if that applies.
Typically, the house rules must be submitted to the regulator for approval before adoption or amendment. As both Delaware and Rhode Island run their sports wagering through the lottery, the house rules regulation takes a different approach. Instead of granting authority to its operators to create house rules, the lottery has promulgated house rules that each casino must post and follow. Some states, such as Iowa, have chosen to streamline the process, to get sports wagering up and running quickly.
Specifically, many wager offerings were not permitted upon launch and will be reviewed when everything settles. State regulators take compliance seriously. In Mississippi, for example, the gaming commission recently issued a disciplinary complaint and fine against a vendor who permitted wagering on a type of event that had not been approved by the commissioners.
Like commercial casinos, tribal casinos are also moving forward with sports wagering plans. The first consideration in tribal casinos offering sports wagering are the terms of existing tribal-state compacts and whether amendments are necessary to permit the tribal casino to offer sports wagering. From the federal level, as sports wagering is a Class III game, NIGC oversight is limited, but approval may be necessary for potential management agreements with third-party vendors.
Depending on the terms of a compact, the local regulator may be the state gaming commission, a tribal gaming commission or both. In either case, education of the regulator regarding internal controls relating to gaming and sports wagering may be necessary. RSM US, LLP is an independent audit, tax and consulting firm that has worked with multiple tribal councils and gaming commissions on developing internal controls relating to gaming and sports wagering.
Theresa Merlino, office managing partner and consulting principal of the Las Vegas office of RSM US, notes that changing technology and customer demands require a different operator approach to internal controls. Sports wagering is a new activity throughout much of the country. The state of Nevada offers an ideal model for jurisdictions to follow to assure a comprehensive regulatory approach to the activity, with New Jersey being a good model for mobile wagering. One area where there are likely to be significant jurisdictional differences will be in the area of the licensing of service providers to the operators.
Service providers and operators looking to start offering sportsbooks in new jurisdictions should seek to become aware of the licensing and regulatory framework and structure that is likely to be applied to their business. In places where sports wagering has been newly authorized, there is typically heavy pressure to allow wagering as quickly as possible. Creating brand love is creating loyalty. But creating loyalty is a complex, multi-layered process.
