£20m to tell us that there's corruption at the lowest levels of the sport because the players don't make money and are at risk of corruption, good stuff .Honestly you could wipe out majority of this corruption by implementing one of their solutions (though a lot of them seem pointless/don't solve anything to me). If they stopped sale of live score data on lower level ITF's you'd get rid of most match fixing on the spot if $10k's, $25k's were no longer offered in live betting. I've never really got why bookmakers offer such markets on matches at that level anyway, you're asking for trouble on all levels.Otherwise this is mostly sensationalist stuff that really doesn't matter that much in scheme of things. Premier League isn't worried about match fixing in the Conference South.
Declan Hill said it was a good report, so I'll take his word for it. Don't know if it was worth £20m though and how much that is in the grand scheme of things, but lawyers are expensive and it sounds like they put in lots of hours for this. Who funded all this anyway?
