The Esports Integrity Coalition and the UK Gambling Commission sign a memorandum of understanding to share information appertaining to the integrity of esports as the popularity of the sport continues to grow.
The first recorded sporting event was a footrace as part of the Olympic Games in 760 BC, and I wasn’t there, but I would bet a date with my daughter that someone tried to trip someone else up as they all marched side by side in their sandals.
It’s life, unfortunately.
Wherever we have a sporting event, there will be people choosing to cheat to win. Somewhere along the way, our loving centre became tarnished with the need to be the best, and when people started gambling on the outcome of sporting events, then the cheating escalated accordingly.
