MoU Inked by Betfair and ECB

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed this week between Betfair Plc and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) based on which they will mutually share information on potential betting integrity related issues.

The MoU involves any cricket played under the auspices of the ECB, including England international matches and all County cricket matches. Thanks to it, Betfair and the ECB will be able to share customer and transactional data with the ECB, but also, Betfair will provide the ECB with access to the analysis of Betfair's integrity team.

It was stated by Martin Cruddace, Betfair's chief legal & regulatory affairs officer: 'The interests of sports governing bodies, like the ECB, and Betfair are completely aligned in wanting to ensure sport is free from corruption and that consumers can bet in a transparent manner on exciting sporting events. If we are to protect the sports we all love then both parties must continue to work openly and co-operatively, and this agreement is a clear example of just that.'

On behalf of the ECB, its Anti-Corruption Manager, Chris Watts said: 'The ECB welcomes Betfair's commitment to share any relevant information and data relating to betting patterns on international and domestic cricket. This will form part of our on-going efforts to protect the integrity of the sport and help ensure that cricket at all levels is free from the taint of corruption.'
