The GUIDEBOOK ON UNDERSTANDING AND EFFECTIVELY COMBATING THE MANIPULATION OF SPORTS COMPETITIONS (KCOOS Guidebook) was developed during the Keep Crime Out of Sport (KCOOS) project that was co-financed by the European Union and the Council of Europe. The project’s various activities, research and networking resulted in a mass of information and notably the need for clarity on various aspects of practically tackling the manipulation of sports competitions.
The guidebook will be edited regularly to add new sections and templates. The first update will refer to setting up a national platform.
Ideas, suggestions and proposals are always welcome to enriching the online tool. Please contact us.
The first version and more information on the KCOOS Guidebook (December 2017) can be found here.
