It should be remembered that GLMS partnered with sports governing bodies such as the International Olympic Committee, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and Union of European Football Association (UEFA) in the fight against match-fixing around the world.

In its statement, ULIS highlighted: “After Peru, Argentina is the second South American country to receive a lottery member at ULIS this year. ALEA has joined ULIS as a regular member, an action praised by the international community as an important step to ensure sporting integrity and combat competition manipulation in the region."
