Tokyo — FIFA, international players' union FIFPro and Interpol have launched a campaign to combat match-fixing.

The aim of the campaign, launched at the FIFPro Congress in Tokyo, is to raise awareness of the dangers of match-fixing, to provide positive role models for players and to educate them on how to recognize, resist and report attempts to fix matches.

To start the campaign, the three organizations are releasing a DVD produced by Interpol that provides players with information they need to help fight match-fixing.

The DVD features soccer players like Frank Lampard, Sone Aluko and Kolo Toure.

In April, a Malaysian man who organised an international match-fixing syndicate involving Australian games in 2013 was jailed for at least a year.
