Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has published its latest newsletter covering off the association’s busy schedule of activities during September. Among the topics for special mention was the recent update of the GLMS Statutes.

According to President Ludovico Calvi, the updated statutes offer evidence of GLMS’ growth from a pure monitoring platform in 2015 to a fully-fledged global sport integrity association as it endeavours to represent the needs of the lotteries and collaborate effectively with stakeholders. 

He stated: “Now, relevant stakeholders within the global sports integrity community, can become associate members of GLMS and benefit from its wide range of services in a concrete way. I encourage any organizations who are active in the sports integrity community to consider becoming part of the GLMS family.”

The newsletter also noted GLMS’ team member activity, highlighting participation with many of its member lotteries in various webinar panels organized by strategic partner SBC. Most recently, it took part in the Interpol Match-Fixing task force and in the SIGA Sport Integrity Week, discussing the impact of COVID19 on the lotteries, related sport integrity implications in general and how the sector is bouncing back.

Calvi added: “Our operations team continues to monitor sports competitions, analysing suspicious trading patterns, and alerting cases to our partners and members. Our GLMS team is working hard to engage with lottery members and provide key contributions to projects, sharing trends, updates, and doing our best to accompany our members and valued partners over the uncertainty of the next months.

“As we reflect on a potential second wave of the pandemic, I remind you to stay vigilant and wish you all and your loved ones good health and continued safety during these challenging times.”
