Match fixing allegations shake Swedish football

14 Nov 2017

sweden match fixingSweden is experiencing an unseen before wave of match fixing throughout 2017. Following the attempts from match fixers who wished to influence the result between IFK Göteborg and AIK earlier this year, a new case emerged in October. This time the match in question was about Malmö FF and HBK, where a Halmstads player was threatened to allow his team to lose.

Swedish outlet, SVT news was contacted a young individual who has profited from match fixing in the past and offered to shade some light into the latest developments.

Specifically, he stated: "Match fixing instances occur every week on team sports and I have received many offers from high-level people in criminal networks. These people are often mixed up in match fixing in different ways.  I have lived in this environment for years and I know many people who are benefiting from match fixing. They know I have earned a lot of money through these matches and that I'm ready to keep investing. They are prepared to offer me money to give them tips. I usually receive 15 to 20 percent of their winnings."

Match fixing does not only hurt the reputation of Swedish football, but it also offers a platform for money laundering among drug cartels. According to the interviewee, he has earned SEK 35 million (€3.5 million) during his match fixing career. He implied that the individuals who offered him money were knee-deep in criminal activities such as drug trafficking. His network offered him tips from the Swedish Allsvenska & Superettan and leagues in Greece and the Netherlands.
