K-League offer financial inducements to whistle-blowers

South Korea's professional football league will offer cash rewards in a bid to clamp down on match-fixing attempts. The K-League officials will award $9,236 to $92,350, depending on the importance of the tip-off, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.

The K-League's probe has so far caught gambling brokers for alleged involvement in match-fixing and charged 10 active players with taking money in exchange for helping their teams lose two matches in April.

The K-League has ordered players to report their involvement in return for reduced punishments for those who turn themselves in while the government has threatened to terminate funding for sports leagues tainted by match-fixing.
