Swedish top-flight clash postponed after ‘match-fixing’ attempt

Date Posted,May 17, 2017

A Swedish top-flight game has been postponed after an alleged match-fixing attempt.

Gothenburg were due to meet AIK on Thursday night in the Allsvenkan.

However, the Swedish FA has confirmed the fixture will be postponed.

General secretary Hakan Sjostrand labelled the alleged attempt a “very serious attack” on Swedish football.

It is alleged an AIK player was approached and offered a “substantial amount” of money to ensure his side would lose the match.

“It is ultimately not about a single match, therefore it is important we act forcefully,” added Sjostrand.

“The starting point for all of our games is that they are safe and settled on sporting grounds. Based on the information we have, we cannot guarantee that.”

AIK sit sixth in the table after eight games while Gothenburg are 11th.
