Swedish top-flight game postponed due to match-fixing fears

"With veiled threats, the fixer demanded that the player perform badly during the match against IFK Gothenburg", it added.

The Swedish football authorities have cancelled the match due to a significant match fixing claim, from an AIK player, who was approached on Tuesday.

The Allsvenskan clash between Gothenburg and AIK Fotboll on Thursday evening has been postponed after a player was allegedly offered money to ensure that his side lost.

Both clubs, the police and the Swedish professional football body were subsequently contacted.

A game in Sweden has been postponed due to an alleged match-fixing attempt.

IFK Goteborg President Frank Andersson told Swedish Radio that he had previously thought it was "unthinkable" that an attenpt would be made to rig a match in the Allsvenskan, the country's top league.

"This is a serious attack on Swedish football and we will never accept it". Therefore it's important we react with force.

"The starting point for all of our matches is that they should be secure and settled on sporting grounds. From the information we have, we can't guarantee that the game between IFK Göteborg and AIK is a safe match and that it would have been decided on sporting grounds".
