Svenska Spel has decided to halt all bets on Division 2 Södra Svealand until further notice. This is due to the Swedish Football Association’s request for a suspended game and a high number of suspect matches.

Svenska Spel works to ensure that all games are made on the terms of the sport and, therefore, takes great account of it in the range of games and in the work of securing the integrity of the gaming objects and counteract any manipulation.

“We work daily to ensure that the gaming objects we offer our customers are free from manipulation. In dialogue with the Football Association, we have expressed our concern about Division 2 Södra Svealand and when the number of suspect matches is so many that the integrity of the entire series can be questioned, we see no other solution is to stop all games,” Dan Korhonen, head of sports betting and gaming security at Svenska Spel said.
