DFS Sportsbook Operator DraftKings Joins IBIA

The ranks of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) were joined by DFS and sportsbook operator DraftKings. The move was confirmed this week in a statement from IBIA in which the organisation said that the membership of DraftKings would greatly improve its tailor-made global monitoring network.

CEO Khalid Ali of IBIA commented: “The association is delighted to welcome another leading name in the regulated sports betting sector to its ranks. DraftKings operates in a truly global business landscape.

“The addition of DraftKings’ sportsbook trading platform provides a significant boost to IBIA’s already extensive global regulated sports betting market and customer monitoring capabilities.”

Tim Dent, DraftKings’ Chief Compliance Officer, said: “Joining the leading global voice on integrity for the licensed betting industry is a clear statement of intent by DraftKings.

“The company places the protection of its client’s businesses, consumers and sporting events from corruption at the forefront of our corporate strategy. This agreement provides DraftKings’ private operator sportsbook clients with unparalleled trading and risk management protection.”

The International Betting Integrity Association is a leading international voice for the regulated betting industry in terms of integrity.

In order to leverage its data and prosecute corruption, the association has longstanding information-sharing agreements with leading sports and gambling regulators. The sector is reflected in high-level policy dialogue forums such as the IOC, the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the European Commission.
