Education Developed by CCES Tackles CFL Match Manipulation Policy
Ottawa – May 25, 2023 – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) launched a new e-learning course to educate Canadian Football League (CFL) players and personnel on the details of the new CFL Match Manipulation Policy – the first of its kind for a professional league in Canada.
The CFL Match Manipulation Policy has been implemented to maintain the integrity of the league and protect against the increasing threats of match manipulation, also known as competition manipulation. A single CFL game can generate over $6 million in wagers from around the world, which indicates that there exists a risk for the league to be susceptible to match-fixing, and for players and non-players to be targeted by match fixers.
