Prosecutors investigating alleged match-fixing in Austria

Austrian football was hit by a betting scam just last year.

VIENNA -- Public prosecutors in Austria have opened an investigation into an alleged attempt to fix the result of a top-flight football match involving SV Ried in the 2007-08 season.

Prosecutor Alois Ebner tells the Austria Press Agency on Wednesday they are looking into claims made last week by Ried coach Oliver Glasner, who was the team's captain seven years ago.

In an interview with daily Kronen Zeitung, Glasner said he and his teammates turned down an offer of 50,000 euros ($56,800) each to deliberately lose the game, though Glasner didn't reveal which match it was nor who tried to bribe them.

Austrian football was rocked last year by a betting scam led by former international Sanel Kuljic, involving the attempted manipulation of 18 domestic league games between 2004 and 2013.
