Football match-fixing: six arrested by police investigating betting syndicate as rigging hits British game

Members of an alleged betting syndicate have been arrested on suspicion of fixing English football games in the biggest match-rigging scandal for decades, The Telegraph can disclose.

Officers from the National Crime Agency held six men in the past two days, including at least three footballers and Delroy Facey, a player-turned-agent who has played in the Premier League.

The arrests have been made in the wake of an investigation by The Telegraph that found match fixers from Asia were targeting games across Britain.

One internationally known fixer arrived in this country last week and was arrested on Tuesday evening.
