Sports federations and leagues in Russia want to be empowered to collect information on bets made by competitors. Dmitry Svishchev, head of the State Duma Committee on Sports and Physical Culture, said this.
According to Dmitry Svishchev, leagues and federations now have a direct obligation to fight contractual events in the sports industry. However, there is not enough power to fulfill that responsibility. Thanks to the new bill, sports organizations will be able to receive information about betting and betting through a special system, as well as through requests for relevant data from betting shops
The bill, which will allow leagues and federations to learn about betting athletes, in the State Duma will be considered during the spring session. The document has already received support from the government with the condition that a number of modifications be made by the second reading.
In addition it is also planned to work on increase of deductions from sports betting for the benefit of domestic sport. According to preliminary proposals, the amount of deductions will grow to 2% of quarterly revenues, but the rate will increase gradually over the years 2023-2030. According to the expert, in the context of global sanctions, attracting extra-budgetary sources of funding comes to the fore and is crucial for the development of Russian sport.
During the spring session deputies also plan to solve a number of other initiatives that will touch on the development of student sports and quality control of fitness services. Recall that the company Slotegrator summed up the year and spoke about the main achievements of the past 2022.
