Anders Wikström, a former professional footballer who now works alongside Svenska Spel and the SEF, is due to deliver the lectures. He stated:“As a young player you probably have not reflected so much around match fixing; you play football because it’s fun.“By highlighting the issue early on, we hope to prevent future match fixing.”As well as offering education to the younger teams competing in the youth tournament, Wikström has worked alongside the 32 clubs across Sweden’s Allsvenskan and second-tier Superettan to deliver classes on the risks associated with match-fixing in the hope of deterring players from considering the idea.The initiative is the latest from the Swedish regulator to clamp down on corruption in the country’s sports and betting industry.
