GLMS (Global Lottery Monitoring System) has announced that Ludovico Calvi will cover his role as president for the next few years as well.

He was re-elected for the third consecutive time. Ludovico Calvi said:

“I am delighted and privileged to have been appointed President of GLMS for a 3rd consecutive term after two very exciting mandates and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all GLMS members for the renewed trust.

During the last two terms we have been able to set very solid foundations to drive the success of our association in the titanic fight against Match Fixing and to protect Sports Integrity worldwide.

I am fully convinced that GLMS represents a tremendous vehicle not only for our Association and its members but also for all other key interested stakeholders, our communities, and our society as a whole.

During the month of June, we participated for the first time as official “observers” to the Council of Europe Convention’s Follow up Committee meeting, during which GLMS was able to present its own strategic objectives and drivers to support the Council to meet the challenges ahead.

Our organization was the only one invited as observers with Interpol and IOC.

On the operational side, the focus has been very much on the major sport events taking place during the month such as Euro 2020, Copa America 2020 as well as the Tennis tournaments of Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

GLMS also set up for the first time an internal ad hoc monitoring group for its members, who met various times with the GLMS Integrity Hub team and the General Secretariat during the Euro 2020 and Copa America 2020 competitions to follow and assess the development of the tournaments, in parallel to an institutional level working group in which GLMS participates with UEFA and local national platforms.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to continue to stay vigilant and strong despite the enlightening of measures, and to wish you a great summer.
