In May 2014, the then Minister of Sport and Recreation, Murray McCully, announced a new policy on Sports Match-Fixing and Related Corruption. The policy is a pre-emptive step to safeguard our athletes and to protect and uphold the integrity and reputation of New Zealand Sport. An important part of this policy requires all NSOs to adopt their own Anti-Match-Fixing and Sports Betting Policy.
To assist in the process, Sport NZ developed a comprehensive model policy for NSOs which ONZ has adapted to fit our capacity and capability and align with our sport.
Please note, given the policy is based on the SportNZ policy which is clear around legal requirements, there has been some adaptation but we are limited as to how far we can adapt the policy. In particular the procedures have been specifically written to ensure there are clear and concise guidelines around dealing with any breaches of the policy and consistency across sports within the country.
The ONZ draft Anti-Match-Fixing and Sports Betting Policy is now available for member consultation and review. Click here
