At the commencement of the 2013/2014 season, the FAW used two integrity experts to undertake a comprehensive risk assessment of Welsh football and as a result we know that the threat to the game here in Wales is significant.
It was discovered that an average of £575,000 is bet on the WPL each match, each week, with £75 million bet on average every year.
The Tour will take in all 12 clubs of the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League this season, including Champions The New Saints. The Tour will deliver a unique and tailored education workshop and e-learning tool to the senior team and youth teams of each club, as well as Club Officials and the WPL’s match officials.
Speaking about the Tour, WPL Secretary Gwyn Derfel added ,“This Tour has been the product of a positive and focused collaboration between the WPL, The FAW and Sportradar and I am delighted to see the Tour now underway. We at the WPL are absolutely focused on ensuring that our league is honest, competitive and exciting and we will not compromise: our players and our fans rely on that.”
