Abstract: The world of fraud and corruption is a parallel universe in terms of functioning, but is articulated with the normal activity of society. They go unnoticed in many cases, and in others, the citizens ignore them, reason why they tend to persist and to gain colossal dimensions. Both phenomena extend from the economic, financial, social, environmental, fiscal, sports, among others.
The aim of this article is to identify some cases of sports fraud, particularly the recently publicized in media that, due to their popularization. They cause significant changes in the fight against fraud and corruption, both on the part of institutions and the laws and regulations in force, and of the procedures to be adopted to identify signs of achievement, as well as in the emergence of organisms capable of acting in the prevention of these phenomena.
The methodology used was the bibliographic review of articles published in scientific journals, having, in certain cases, chosen national journals of daily circulation, due to the specificity of the fraud, its actors and the way of disclosure and access of the information.
It was concluded that sports fraud and corruption occur in situations of bribery of referees and players with the purpose of manipulating game results, doping, sports betting to minors, buying voting in member elections for certain entities, in the choice of welcoming cities for major events or through the simple deliberation of top management, bribery of sports entities and leaders, violence, financial mismanagement, lack of respect for consumers, conflict of interest, etc. It is also concluded that the lack of regulation by the world public and political power creates the necessary conditions for the proliferation of the phenomenon that, in many cases, is associated with certain positions and public agencies. Global re-education is needed if the fight against fraud and corruption is to take effect.
