Swedish football fixture postponed over 'match-fixing'
IFK Gothenburg were due to play AIK in the top-flight on Thursday evening.
A game in Sweden has been postponed due to an alleged match-fixing attempt.
IFK Gothenburg were due to play AIK in the Swedish top-flight on Thursday evening but the game has now been called off due to the allegation.
The Swedish Football Association say an AIK player was approached and offered a large sum of money and threatened in an attempt to influence his performance.
Hakan Sjostrand, the general secretary of the SVFF, added: "It's not just about a single match. This is a very serious attack and a betting attempt against Swedish football. We are never, ever going to accept that and therefore it's important we act with force.
"The starting point for all of our matches is that it should be secure and decided on sporting grounds. Based on this information we can not guarantee the fixture between IFK Gothenburg and AIK is a secure match which will be decided on sporting grounds."
A new date for the fixture must now be agreed upon between the clubs and the league.
The player, who has not been named, informed the SvFF on Wednesday evening that he had been approached. Both clubs, the police and the Swedish professional football body were subsequently contacted.
Police have also launched an investigation into the incident.
