And 15 States sign Match Fixing Convention

Convention signatories (green), as well as other potential
signatories from COE (yellow) and other states (blue)
Just a short update, following the signature ceremony in Magglingen of the Council of Europe Convention on Manipulation of Sports Competitions. The convention was signed by 15: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Lithuania, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Serbia and Switzerland and the status is now available here.

As described in my previous post besides the 47 Council of Europe members, also to the EU, and 11 other states, but the signatures are until now confined to the Council of Europe. Entry into force of the convention requires ratification by 5 states (3 of which should be COE states). That will not happen anymore in 2014 and also 2015 seems early. My guess is that the 5 ratification will be achieved in a about 2 years from now in Summer 2016....
