The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has announced its new executive committee for 2021 to 2023, with Ludovico Calvi of Lottomatica to remain as its president.
Calvi will serve as president and chair for a third term, while Gilles Maillet, sports integrity director at Française des Jeux (FDJ), will replace Rupert Bolingbroke from the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) as vice-chair.
Younès EL Mechrafi from Moroccan Games and Sports and Lori Sullivan of Canada’s Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation were also elected as member of the committee. Sullivan was first appointed to the committee in December last year.
GLMS also announced two members each from the World Lottery Association (WLA) and European Lotteries (EL) that were appointed to its executive committee.
From the WLA, Michael Fitzsimons of the HKJC and Fàbian Garcia-Saetonne from Uruguay’s La Banca de Quinelas were validated as members, while from the EL, Gilles Maillet of FDJ and Jens Nielsen from Denmark’s Danske Spil were approved as committee members.
“I am delighted and privileged to have been appointed president of GLMS for a third consecutive term and would like to thank all members of GLMS for the renewed trust,” Calvi said.
“We’ve set very solid foundations to drive the success of our association in the titanic fight against match-fixing and to protect sports Integrity worldwide.
“I’m fully convinced that GLMS represents a tremendous vehicle not only for our association and its members but also for all other key interested stakeholders, our communities, and our society as a whole.”
In April, GLMS revealed that it alerted 23 suspicious matches to sporting governing bodies between January and March this year. Some 16 of the 23 match alerts concerned football matches, with seven alerts being sent to Uefa and four to Fifa.
