Europol uncover global soccer fixing scam
Federal politicians are calling for greater vigilance against soccer match fixing in Australia in the wake of a large bust in Europe.
An investigation is underway in dozens of countries after European Police identified almost 400 suspicious soccer matches
World Cup Qualifiers are also being scrutinised.
Independent Senator Nick Xenophon says Australia may need to strengthen its legislation.
"When you have ball by ball betting, micro betting, that makes sport ripe for corruption, ripe for match fixing," Mr Xenophon said.
"What has come out of Europe, through the investigations of Europol is very disturbing so I'm looking forward to a statement from the Australian Federal Police" he said.
Former CEO of Football Federation Victoria and current CEO of the Sydney Football Club Tony Pignata says he hasn't seen corruption to this scale before.
"Corruption and game fixing has been going on for a little while, mainly in the lower leagues in Europe but now we are looking at Champions league games and big clubs in Germany," he told Neil Mitchell.
"As more information comes to light it's going to blow the whole game apart to be honest" he said.
