November 1, 2013

Swedish football club Landskrona BoIS has revealed that they have reported several cases of match-fixing to local police.

A statement from the second division club said: “After consultations with the Swedish Football Association, Landskrona BoIS has decided to lodge a police complaint over match-fixing and illegal betting during several of the club’s matches this season.”

The club suspended two of its own players of October 24 on suspicion of influencing results in favour of opposing teams. The player’s names and the fixtures they are alleged to have fixed were not revealed.

Svenska Spel, Sweden’s state-owned betting monopoly previously suspended betting on several of the club’s matches due to unusual patterns.
