Sweden suspects match-fixing in 2nd-tier league
STOCKHOLM (AP) — Sweden’s football federation says it suspects a case of match-fixing in the Scandinavian country’s second-tier league, Superettan.
The Swedish Football Association said Wednesday it had reported a case of “suspected bribery” to the police in connection with a match between Jonkopings Sodra and Syrianska on Aug. 25. Jonkoping won 4-0.
SVFF said it reviewed footage of the game after being told by UEFA and Sweden’s gambling monopoly that there had been “abnormal betting patterns.”
The federation said it had “no reason to believe that someone at Jonkoping Sodra has committed any crime,” and said it will cooperate with the police.
