Match in Sweden postponed for match fixing moved to August

IFK Gothenburg will host AIK on Aug. 10 in a match postponed last week due to attempted match fixing.

STOCKHOLM --  A top-tier league game in Sweden postponed last week due to match-fixing attempts will be played in August.

The Swedish soccer federation says IFK Gothenburg will host AIK on Aug. 10.

The scheduled game last Thursday was called off and police opened an investigation.

The federation said an AIK player was offered "a substantial amount" to help ensure his team lost.

AIK are fourth in the 16-team league, which runs from April to November. Goteborg is 10th.
