What is this website ?

SportsLeaks.com and DopingLeaks.com are one and the same website. It is a secure global platform which enables you to drop off information and files to investigative sports journalists working around the world. We have all received leaked data in the past from whistleblowers. That spawned the idea of creating a secure platform in order to provide better protection for our sources and to collect more data.

In the course of our journalistic work, we have come to believe that parts of the world of high-level sports are rife with doping, corruption and cheating. It has been apparent for some time that sports' internal measures to fight corruption and cheating have failed. But our experience in recent years has also shown that the troubling situation within sports can change. With the help of courageous whistleblowers, professional journalistic research around the world has uncovered a number of examples of corruption and cheating. In response to pressure from the media and the public, sporting and political authorities have been forced to react. That encouraged us to create SportsLeaks.com and DopingLeaks.com. This is the only platform of its kind in the world. It is intended to provide safe, secure and trustworthy assistance for everyone who wants to publicize and combat corruption and cheating in sports.

If you decide to give us information, we guarantee to:

SportsLeaks.com and DopingLeaks.com are intended to be the go-to place world-wide for whistleblowers. A state-of-the-art secure platform to serve the cause of transparency, credibility and the truth in international sports.

You will find more information below about who we are, how you can send us data and how we will protect you.
