These policies are part of Sport NZ’s overall commitment to safeguarding people involved in play, active recreation and sport. They will be supplemented with further guidance, templates, knowledge-sharing and training to support national, regional and community organisations.
Match-fixing is a type of competition manipulation in sport because it involves deliberately changing how sport is played and the outcome of a match, for individual gain. While it has not been a major problem for sport in Aotearoa New Zealand in the past, we all must be vigilant in keeping an eye out for it, so it doesn’t become common.
This policy aims to:
- give clear guidance on how to identify match fixing (including spot-fixing)
- give clear guidance on what to do if anyone identifies match-fixing in the sport
- help keep people in the sport safe from match-fixing
- support a culture of speaking up in our sport
- make sure the approach taken to dealing with match- fixing is fair and consistent, including enabling culturally appropriate responses and processes.
