HBO's "Real Sports" Focuses On Soccer's Match-Fixing Scandals

Tonight's episode of HBO's "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel" at 8:00pm ET will feature the story "Anatomy of a Fix," which explores a "global match-making soccer network that reporters think threatens 'the very legitimacy of the sport.'" The story focuses on the "nearly 400 professional soccer games in Europe under suspicion of being 'fixed' by players and referees." Reporters "spent many weeks in Italy, which the program contends is one of the cornerstones" of the scandal. The show's producers "obviously believe the program will draw a larger audience while the World Cup is being played" (DENVER POST, 6/23).
