Abstract

Match fixing to serve betting interests is certainly as old as organised sport itself, for example it is believed to have been common in the case of eighteenth century professional cricket in England. And in the twentieth century, the history of sport even at its most elite levels was punctuated by high-profile scandals, including fixes in the baseball World Series of 1919 and in the South Africa-England cricket series in 1990. For football (soccer), Hill (2010) gathered credible documentary evidence that fixing was far from infrequent in the supposedly Golden Age of the game in England in the 1950s.
