FIFA Wary of Match-Fixing with $100B Expected in World Cup Bets

FIFA already has plenty of controversy on its plate with the World Cup starting on Sunday, but now it’s got another potential problem: match-fixing.

Soccer’s global governing body is working with sports data and technology company Sportradar to identify any signs of unfair play.

  • Sportradar monitors both the betting markets and the games themselves. The company says it tracks 30 billion data sets from 600 global bookmakers.
  • It identified 600 suspicious soccer matches in the first nine months of 2022 alone, mostly in leagues with relatively low pay for players and officials.
  • Global bets on the World Cup are expected to top $100 billion, making suspicious wagers potentially harder to identify.

Though FIFA is being cautious, the World Cup is considered an unlikely target for match-fixing due to players’ ample compensation. FIFA will distribute $440 million in prize money, plus $10,000 per player per day to club teams that have employed World Cup players in the last two years.
