The Coalition of Major Professional & Participation Sports has rejected the Federal Government’s proposal to establish a national sports integrity tribunal. The CMPPS has argued that key sports codes are likely to favour resolving cases of corruption, doping and match-fixing via their own tribunals. Sports codes’ involvement in the national sports court would be on an "opt-in" basis rather than being compulsory. A review panel is also looking at issues such as imposing criminal penalties for match-fixing and increasing the powers of the National Sport Integrity Unit.
