Sports Betting Intelligence Unit

In this section

The Sports Betting Intelligence Unit (SBIU) is part of the Gambling Commissions Intelligence capability and supports the Commission's betting integrity programme dealing with reports of betting-related corruption. It was set up as part of the recommendations in the 2010 Report of the Sports Betting Integrity Panel. The SBIU collects information and develops intelligence about potentially corrupt betting activity involving sport.

Consumers must have confidence and belief that when they place bets with UK licensed operators they are doing so on markets that are fair and free from betting related corruption. Central to this is collaborative working across the industry (including operators, sport, law enforcement and other regulators) to understand the potential threats and help protect the integrity of sport and betting. The SBIU contributes to this collaboration.

The SBIU will share, where appropriate, specific intelligence or information with other partners (both nationally and internationally). The intention is that the SBIU will help bring together the intelligence efforts of partners and play its part in protecting sport from corruption.
