Organized crime and cartels being linked to having an influence in soccer goes back decades. It looks like the article went on to state that ~ 425 were found to have been fixed since in the past seven to eight years. With that link and given the number of competitive matches all over the world that are played on a yearly basis, that number (to me) isn't all that surprising.
