Innovation Seminar

As a partner of the European Commission in terms of the promotion of the European Week of Sport, EL has this year again enthusiastically promoted sport and physical activity all over Europe. EL publishes a report on the ways EL and its Members spread out the #BEACTIVE message throughout the continent during the European Week of Sport 2016.

The words of thanks received by the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) from the Dutch football association regarding the support provided in dealing with match-fixing suspicions against Albanian club KF Skënderbeu, is an important recognition of the value and impact of the lottery association cooperation. Indeed, it demonstrates that reactive feedback can help in some specific cases for an informed stakeholder decision. 

European Parliament hearing on “The way forward for grassroots sport in Europe”, organised by the European Non Governmental Sport Organisation (ENGSO) and supported by the European Lotteries Association (EL), highlights the Recommendations by the High Level Group on Grassroots Sport as the European Lotteries Association announces its new EL Sport Award

GLMS is the state lotteries’ mutualised monitoring system on sports betting. It aims at detecting and analysing suspicious betting activities that could question the integrity of a sport competition. GMLS has full time operators to collect and distribute information to members and partners.

Driven by the core lottery values, integrity, precaution and solidarity, EL was a pioneer association when launching as of 1999 a cooperation for the sharing of information on sports betting modern evolutions. As of 2005 this cooperation oriented specifically towards looking at integrity threats, with formal set up of ELMS in 2009 to monitor sports betting markets irregularities.

Building on these years of experience and efforts deployed at European level, the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) was set up in 2015 with worldwide ambitions.
