Seoul: A South Korean news report says prosecutors have indicted 37 footballers for alleged involvement in the country`s widening match-fixing scandal.

Yonhap news agency said Thursday that players from six different teams allegedly took up to 31 million won ($29,140) in bribes for trying to fix the results of games.
It cited a local prosecution office in the southeastern city of Changwon as saying the outcomes of 15 K-League games last year were rigged, and said 11 non-players — including illegal gambling brokers — were also indicted Thursday.
Calls to the Changwon prosecution office and the K-League office were not immediately answered.
