New date for Swedish soccer match targeted for fixing

May 23, 2017

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A top-tier league game in Sweden postponed last week due to match-fixing attempts will be played in August.

The Swedish soccer federation says Goteborg will host AIK on Aug. 10.

The scheduled game last Thursday was called off and police opened an investigation.

The federation said an AIK player was offered “a substantial amount” to help ensure his team lost.

AIK is fourth in the 16-team league, which runs from April to November. Goteborg is 10th.
