The International Football Federation (FIFA) said today that no indications of “manipulation” or irregularities were found in the matches of the recently concluded World Cup in Qatar.
The integrity task force scrutinized the footage of the 64 matches played at the World Cup to spot any irregularities or attempts at manipulation.
The submitted report claims that such cases have not been identified, it says on the website of the world house of football. Legal betting markets have been analysed, numerous investigations have been carried out in multiple jurisdictions and site supervision has been reviewed to prevent any attempt at match manipulation.
FIFA said it would continue to work with members of the Integrity Task Force to safeguard future competitions, starting with the 2023 Women’s World Cup.
World football’s governing body will also continue to develop its integrity strategies with confederations, member associations and other stakeholders in the fight against match-fixing
