The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) and the Spanish online gambling trade body Jdigital have signed a partnership agreement providing a framework for cooperation and coordination between the two bodies.
The memorandum of understanding will see the associations work on projects aimed at promoting regulated betting markets with high consumer channelling and related consumer, sports and operator integrity protection measures. Joint activity will be particularly focused on the continuing evolution of the Spanish market.
Andrea Vota, Director General of Jdigital, highlighted that: “This partnership is a clear sign of Jdigital’s commitment with safe and responsible gambling. Betting is the main activity of online gambling in Spain and it is the industry’s will to keep this segment a safe, trustworthy one. We are excited to start collaborating with IBIA, who we consider the best partner in this crusade.”
Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said: “Spain is an important market for IBIA members, many of which are also part of Jdigital. A closer alliance between our associations therefore makes perfect sense, especially with the expected offshore channelization challenges to the Spanish market from the recent advertising and sponsorship restrictions. IBIA will be working closely with our colleagues at Jdigital to utilise our unique international data to inform and enhance the integrity of that market and its sporting events.”
