The combination of results is a type of fraud that is present not only in sports practice but also in sports institutions. These institutions, made up of clubs, federations, sports agents, associations organizing events, etc., are engaging in different forms of fraud. These practices give rise to illicit enrichment with the transformation of these sports clubs into profitable companies, through the hiring of great players, the construction of colossal infrastructures, among others. The various forms of fraud can be exemplified through match fixing, doping, tax evasion, money laundering, among many other forms of corruption shake world sport.
The objective of this study is to analyze the effect that manipulation of results has on sport and, to this end, the concepts of fraud, corruption in sport and manipulation of results are addressed in order to emphasize the negative aspect that it brings to sport. We used a methodology based on a literature review based mainly on the B-on and Sport Discus databases.
It was possible to conclude that fraud and corruption assume in the manipulation of results a large number of occurrences not only in Portugal but also around the world. It affects several players, including referees, football players, among other modalities, fans, managers and many others who intervene in fraudulent schemes. The fight against fraud and corruption, through laws and regulations and a more complete education, the birth of organizations that monitor and supervise fraud and corruption have together improved the increase of this fuss in sport, but there should be more punitive measures for offenders not only to eradicate the problem but also to dissuade the offending agents.
