 Footballers Believe Match Fixing Rare in England Football

Footballers in England does not believe that the menace of match-fixing has affected the game, according to an international survey.

Over 1,500 players from eight countries - England, Scotland, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Romania and Slovenia - submitted responses to a questionnaire by international players' union FIFPro.


According to the BBC, out of the respondents, 121 were from England and 66 from Premier League clubs, and they said that none of them had been approached in the last 12 months to fix a game.

Every player in English football questioned said they had not played in a game that has since been identified as fixed, nor had they been approached in the past 12 months to fix a match, nor did they believe one or more games have been fixed in that period.

In England, the survey however, concluded betting against the rules by players was the primary threat to integrity in the game, with nine of 111 players who responded to the question stating that they had gambled on matches, the report added.
