The Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA) announces the Event Guide (click to download) and the latest set of speakers.

Ensuring a reformist and action-oriented vision, SIGA brings together 170+ Speakers, engages 150+ organisations and mobilises high-profile leaders from the world of sport, politics, media, sponsors, betting industry, rights holders, and civil society.

Over a dozen carefully prepared panels, as many keynotes and testimonials, fireside chats and round tables ensure knowledge sharing at the highest level.

Significantly, a series of agreements will be signed with the United Nations, the Portuguese Professional Football League, the Danish Football League, Lisbon Holy House of Mercy, Lu:nex and Eurovision Sport.

Culminating an extensive consultation process involving leading experts and key organisations in the field, the SIGA Universal Standards on Youth Development and Protection in Sport will be launched on Tuesday, 13th September.
