The Sports Betting Group (SBG) was formed in 2010 following the publication of the Report of the Sports Betting Integrity Panel (Parry Report).
One specific recommendation in the report called for the sports sector itself to provide leadership through the establishment of a Sports Betting Group made up of people drawn from sport. Further information on the Sports Betting Group, its role and its constituent members can be found here.
Another recommendation of the Parry Report was that a Sports Betting code of practice be introduced. The Sports Betting Group has subsequently consulted with the sports world and drawn together the following code.
