DRA SIGNS DATA-SHARING AGREEMENT WITH MALTA GAMING AUTHORITY
August 1, 2020
The Darts Regulation Authority (DRA) has today announced a landmark new data sharing partnership with the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).
Both organisations will cooperate in cases of unusual or suspicious betting activity around darts events, further strengthening the DRA’s existing anti-corruption measures.
The agreement follows the announcement earlier this week of an agreement between the MGA and the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association, helping to align the organisations in the battle against anti-corruption in the respective sports.
Nigel Mawer QPM, DRA Chairman said: “The Darts Regulation Authority performs an important role in keeping darts safe from corruption and match fixing. This new partnership with the MGA will go a long way towards helping the DRA protect the sport. It sends a clear message that the DRA has the worldwide ability to detect and prosecute players who breach the Betting Rules and damage the sport.”
Antonio Zerafa, MGA Sports Integrity Manager said: “The COVID-19 pandemic altered the very foundations of sports betting. However, these unprecedented circumstances did not diminish our ambitions towards meeting and partnering with new sport governing bodies such as the Darts Regulation Authority. Through this agreement which we have signed we are very much looking forward to helping the DRA fulfil their obligation to investigate cases of sports betting related corruption.”
