SEOUL - South Korea's professional football league will offer cash rewards to individuals who report on
match-fixing attempts in the latest bid to curb corruption,
local media reported on Tuesday.
The K-League officials will award $9,000 to $90,000, depending on the importance of the
tip-off, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.
The K-League's probe has so far caught gambling brokers for
alleged involvement in match-fixing and charged 10 active
players with taking money in exchange for helping their teams
lose two matches in April.
Last month a player was found dead in a hotel room, with
Yonhap reporting a suicide note had been discovered referring to
the match-fixing ring.
The K-League has ordered players to report their involvement
in return for reduced punishments for those who turn themselves
in while the government has threatened to terminate funding for
sports leagues tainted by match-fixing.
