Australian sport's match-fixing case remains a mystery but football boss David Gallop was quick to clear up one thing on Friday - it doesn't involve an A-League game.
Federal Justice Minister Jason Clare revealed on Thursday that authorities were investigating a potential case of match-fixing linked to organised crime and doping in Australian professional sport.
Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Graham Ashton subsequently raised the example of a recent A-League match in Melbourne attracting $40 million in bets from a single Asian-based bookmaker when he highlighted concerns about the high risk of match-fixing in sport.
Gallop moved swiftly on Friday to clarify there was no link between those two statements.
"It's worth noting ... neither the authorities involved yesterday nor any other authorities are investigating any A-League match," Gallop said.
"We have had it confirmed overnight by our overseas surveillance agency that they don't see any issues of concern around integrity around any A-League match.
"Having said that, there are issues of concern for Australian sport and we need a speedy resolution to these issues.
"The vast majority of sports people, players and officials are doing the right thing. So one way or another, we need to get the actual facts on the table in a speedy way."
Asked if he was concerned about the betting plunge, Gallop said: "As far as we are concerned, there is no investigation into any A-League match by any authority including the Victorian police."
The Australian Football Federation's games are monitored by the surveillance agency Sportradar.
Gallop said authorities needed to pursue the allegations made about performance-enhancing drugs and match-fixing, overseen by organised crime, as quickly as possible.
"The sooner we know actual facts the better.
"If we can get to the bottom of these things, Australian sport will be all the better."Gallop also said he did not expect any issues to arise involving his long period at the helm of the NRL before moving to the Football Federation of Australia in November.
