Play the Game 2013 is just around the corner, and before the big conference in Aarhus, Denmark kicks off, the International Director for Play the Game, Jens Sejer Andersen, is very excited about this years conference.
– This conference will outdo all the previous Play the Game conferences. This year the largest number of different experts and representatives from various unions and organisations, we have ever seen at a Play the Game conference, says Jens Sejer Andersen.
This is the eighth biannual conference and Jens Sejer Andersen is thrilled about the development Play the Game has achieved throughout these years.
– You just need to take a look at how big the issue on match fixing has become the last couple of years. I believe Play the Game is a big part of that along with a whole range of other huge topics such as doping and corruption.
The Largest Play the Game Conference
This year will have the largest attendance of participants with just around 350 people joining the conference through the four days in Aarhus.
– It’s very positive that the conference is growing each year. Now the sporting world know who we are and what we are trying to do. That gives us a whole new role in the debates to promote democracy, transparency and the freedom of expression, says Jens Sejer Andersen.
