The Japan Football Association (JFA) has opted to extend its partnership with Early Warning System (EWS) – a subsidiary of football’s global governing body Fifa.
Under the extended deal, EWS will continue to work with the JFA to monitor activity in Japanese football in order to protect the integrity of the sport in the country.
EWS will also assist the JFA with specific services, knowledge transfer and technical facilities.
In addition, EWS will monitor betting markets for irregularities, analyse specific match situation in their sports context and flag up any suspected match manipulation with the JFA.
Ralf Mutschke, director of security at Fifa, said: “We are proud to be working with the JFA for the fifth consecutive year.
“The JFA is a very strong partner in the global fight against match manipulation and such cooperation with our member associations represents a fundamental keystone of our overall strategy.”
