Criminality in competition and match-fixing have become a global threat of sports and threaten to damage the fundamental characteristics of sports, the credibility, the fairness and the integrity of sports.
- Ineligible sports betting:
Players and Team Staff must not bet on EBEL games and on games of any EBEL team in other championships (e.g. CHL).
- Compulsory registration of possible game manipulations:
Every participant of a team (players, team staff etc.) in the EBEL has to register possible game manipulations. Therefore it is obligatory establishing a confidant within the club.
- Commitment of instructions for prevention of game manipulation:
Especially there has to be a youth program of instructions in prevention of game manipulation.
A person who offers, promises or grant an illegal advantage to any official functionary of the EBEL, the federation or a club, to a game official or a player or a third party directly or indirectly in order that this person violates the regulations will be punished according to the penalty catalogue Nr. 42 – 44.
A person who is asking, accepts, promises or grant any kind of illegal advantage for him-self or a third party or does not report any attempt immediately to the appropriate federation will be punished in the same way.
Offense under this provision shall lapse after 5 years, unless a longer criminal statute of limitations exists, otherwise the longer criminal statute of limitations applies.
