Brasília will host its ‘Sports Integrity Week‘ in September, during which the Sports Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA) will present its ‘independent integrity report’ on Brazilian football (5 September).

The event has been organised by the ‘Parliamentary Front for the Modernisation of Football’ – which has urged national stakeholders, including the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), state federations, Series A and B clubs, athletes, and associations, to establish an open dialogue on football integrity.

The event will see SIGA host a special session that will include a public hearing sponsored by the Special Subcommittee dedicated to the modernisation of Brazilian football.
