A global phenomenon of gambling and match-fixing that is transforming societies and destroying sports around the world. Many of the leagues in Asia where it started, and Eastern Europe, have effectively collapsed because of this corruption. Now, the fixers are coming to Western Europe and North America and they are operating at some of the world’s biggest sports tournaments.
This extraordinary new trend has never been previously examined on film; but The Gang will not only introduce its viewers to these illegal gambling markets, it will take them to the very heart of this murky world. They will meet the people who thrive in it: professional gamblers, criminal bookmakers and odds compliers. They will see the illegal gambling market at work. They will see games being played on one side of the world, while on the other side of the world bets are being placed on their outcome.
Most importantly, they will hear the stories about the victims of this epidemic. From team owners who have lost everything, to local fixers who have gone into hiding fearing for their lives. The Gang will be riveting, compelling viewing that will profoundly shock people around the world. It is the first comprehensive, inside view of this revolution. It will change the way our viewers watch professional sports. They will never again be able to look at soccer match, a basketball game or a tennis tournament in the same way.
