Declaration of gambling regulators on the FIFA World Cup 2022

Nov 18th '22

Declaration of gambling regulators of France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Great Britain on the FIFA World Cup 2022.


This weekend will see the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.


We recognise that this is one of the world’s largest and most high-profile tournaments and is therefore likely to see an increase in betting activity. As regulators, we have a key role in ensuring that consumers are protected throughout the tournament.


Working closely together during this period, we are committed to monitoring the gambling market, ensuring advertising, betting integrity and consumer protection regulations are followed by gambling operators. Throughout the tournament in Qatar, that will mean increased cross-border cooperation, particularly through the exchange of information, expertise and best practice.


In order to improve awareness of the risks around gambling harm, during the tournament we will also be increasing our activity on social media to promote how people can gamble safely.
