Betting Partners

Since 2010, the PPF has enjoyed a ground-breaking partnership with some of the UK’s leading betting operators to fund education for players against match fixing. This partnership has enabled us to support the development and delivery of online learning and face-to-face education in football, cricket, rugby union, golf, darts and snooker. We aim to ensure that our sportsmen and women in the UK are some of the best educated in the world about the dangers of match fixing.

Sports Betting Integrity Forum

The PPF is a founding member of the Sports Betting Integrity Forum (SBIF). This forum brings together representatives from sport, betting operators, law enforcement and gambling regulation to help coordinate and support the fight against match fixing. SBIF is part of Britain's national platform to address the risks of match fixing and threats to sports betting integrity.

Sports Betting Group

The Sports Betting Group (SBG) brings together representatives from across sport to provide leadership and to share good practice to address the risks from sports betting corruption. The group also provides a source of help and support for sports looking to put in place measures to protect the integrity of their sport.

Sport Resolutions

The PPF was a founding member of Sport Resolutions which is the UK’s sport specific, independent, dispute resolution body. Together with the British Athletes Commission, we nominate a member Director to help ensure that the views of athletes are represented within the governance of the UK’s sports dispute resolution panel.

Sport and Recreation Alliance

The PPF is a member of the Sport and Recreation Alliance (SRA) and sits on their Major Spectator Sports Division. The opportunity to work with the major professional sports on areas of common interest and ensure that the views of players are recognised during policy discussions is an important part of our remit.

This partnership was strengthened when we established the Mental Health Charter for Sport with the SRA and MIND in 2015 to encourage and support sport to improve its support for mental health at the elite and grass roots levels.

UK Anti-Doping

UK Anti-Doping is the independent agency responsible for combatting doping in elite sport. As part of our ongoing relationship with UKAD, we nominate a representative onto its Athletes Panel to help ensure that the system reflects the needs and experiences of professional sportsmen and women.

Mills & Reeve

The sports law team at Mills & Reeve, has a great reputation for sports law. Mark Hovell regularly attends PPF board meetings providing advice and input on a range of different issues our members are dealing with including contract negotiations, image rights, sports injury and insurance claims, endorsement/sponsorship, anti-doping regulations, representations before tribunals or tax planning.
