After 18 months of intensive work, the Council of Europe (CoE) along with its Partners concluded on June 16 in Strasbourg the project “Keep Crime out of Sport” (KCOOS). The European Lotteries Association was a key partner in this project. The KCOOS project had the objective to support states in implementing the key provisions of the Macolin Convention, notably the setting up of national platforms, the sharing of information among key stakeholders, the development of education and prevention initiatives.
The European Lotteries Association pleads for the rapid implementation of the key provisions of the Macolin Convention to better safeguard the integrity of sports and especially to fight against match fixing.
