AxisStars & SIGA announce Partnership

We are delighted to announce that we have Partnered with SIGA – Sport Integrity Global Alliance.

In this new Partnership, our founder Louis Saha will become SIGA’s latest Champion.

AxisStars is the latest organisation to express public support to SIGA’s reform agenda. As part of the partnership, SIGA’s COO Katie Simmonds will sit on the AxisStars Admissions and Ethics Committee and AxisStars’ So-Founder & COO Kate Hamer will be a Mentor in the SIGA Global Mentorship Programme on female leadership in sport.

Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, Global CEO of SIGA and Chairman & CEO of SIGA AMERICA, stated:
“We are delighted to welcome Louis Saha in our SIGA Champions Team, and AxisStars as our newest Committed Supporter. Athletes such as Louis, have a pivotal role to play in changing mentalities and instigating long-overdue reforms. We look forward to working with him to do exactly this.”

Louis Saha commented:
“SIGA is much needed in the world of sport, I’m really impressed by their mission. Collaborating with AxisStars means we can address and improve integrity in sport from both sides – the organisations and the athletes themselves. It was an obvious Partnership to me and I am excited to get started as a SIGA Champion.”
