Unibet Group has signed a cooperation agreement with Early Warning
System GmbH (EWS) in order to improve efforts to safeguard the
integrity of sports and betting. This agreement will further
strengthen the cooperation between Unibet Group and FIFA's Early
Warning System.

Unibet Group has signed a cooperation agreement with the FIFA
subsidiary Early Warning System GmbH (EWS). The purpose of this
agreement is to establish a co-operation to help safeguard the
integrity of sports and betting. Under the agreement Unibet will
exchange information with EWS and will co-operate on efforts to
improve prevention measures and education in the field of sports
betting integrity.

Eric Konings, Sports Betting Integrity Officer at Unibet, states:
"Matchfixing is a threat to football, to our industry, and to our
company. It is our firm belief that cooperation between all relevant
stakeholders is the key to eradicating this problem, and therefore,
we are happy to team up with FIFA in this battle. We operate under
the see something, say something approach, and this cooperation
enables us to directly and immediately alert FIFA in case of an
integrity concern. This further supports our efforts in keeping the
world of sports, and our platform, free of criminal activity."

Since 2006, Early Warning System GmbH (EWS) has been supporting FIFA
in preventing, detecting and investigating match manipulation. EWS
forms an integral component of FIFA's Integrity Initiative with the
aim to support FIFA in the protection of the integrity of football
and in the implementation of FIFA's integrity program. Sharing
information with bookmaking companies is an effective detection
method of match manipulation. The cooperation with Unibet, a
reputable global sports betting operator with expertise in exposing
potential match manipulation, will further improve EWS' efforts to
protect the integrity of football.
