    There appears to be confusion between two entities here, as discussed by Jaimie Fuller in a blog post https://www.ffsi.org.uk/single-post/2018/07/19/The-Way-it-Is — the SKINS Foundation for Sports Integrity, registered company 11387453, which is the organisation he runs, and the Foundation for Sports Integrity, registered company 11337184, which was incorporated by one Philip Hales, and which is in the process of being dissolved.

      Hi Jennifer, there’s been no confusion. I interviewed Jaimie Fuller about the FFSI, regarding its funding and its launch event.
      I think it’s pretty disingenuous for Fuller to suggest reporters have confused his involvement with the SKINS Foundation with the FFSI, when he’s writing on the FFSI website. Other than that latest statement, Fuller’s organisation consistently refers to itself as the FFSI (https://www.ffsi.org.uk/copy-of-media-release-2018-may-31). His statement also ignores the main reasons people are dubious about the benefactor i.e. what Nick McGeehan is quoted as saying and the reported links to AKTA Group (https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/jul/16/football-and-fat-fees-questions-raised-over-funding-of-sporting-conference) Cheers

        There certainly is confusion. There are two similarly named companies, one of which appears to refer to itself by the name of the other. Can the reader tell from the current text which is the one that organised this meeting? I think not. What does the director of the “other” organisation have to say about the confusion or the FIFA issues in general?
