Match-Fixing Whistleblower Fears Asian Attack

TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some pro soccer teams have a dangerous goal: To fix every match on the field.

Author Declan Hill reveals explosive information on match- fixing in pro soccer in his book The Fix: Soccer and Organized Crime (McClelland & Stewart).

In the book, Hill blows the whistle on Asian organized crime gangs, like the Triads, who have fixed soccer matches for monetary gain and, thus, “Destroyed the credibility of Asian leagues.”

According to Hill, the gangs are now moving west to fix the World Cup, European Champions League, and Olympic games with nothing being done to stop them.

After uncovering the conspiracy, Hill now he fears retribution for his snitching.

He says, “There are many protection rouses and strategies I have to follow to stay safe.”

Hill says the dirt he’s uncovered is “the biggest sports story in the world today” that will no doubt have a “massive effect in Europe.”

He says, “FIFA has gone on record already saying they will investigate the claims I make in the book.”

The Fix is on shelves now.
