fifa_0.jpgWorld Football mother body, FIFA, has expressed concerned for the lives of players approached by match-fixers, warning that they could pay the “ultimate price”.

FIFA claims governments throughout the world should be wary of the presence of criminal organisations in fixing and the “staggering” sums of money involved.

Football’s world governing body’s head of security, Chris Eaton, said FIFA is very concerned about the safety of players and officials, adding that there is evidence that some players have been killed in these match fixing rackets.

Eaton last year visited Zimbabwe to get a brief regarding the match fixing allegations against some Zimbabwean players and officials which has been dubbed the Asiagate scandal.
