FIFA will work together with the International police agency Interpol to fight against match-fixing and betting fraud.

FIFA also pledged to allocate 20 million euros ($29 million) to crack down corruption and match-fixing in football.

"Match-fixing shakes the very foundations of sport, namely fair play, respect and discipline," FIFA President Sepp Blatter said at a press-conference in Zurich. "That's why FIFA employs a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to any infringement of these values."

Earlier this month Blatter arrived in Moscow and was met by Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko, who declared Russia's support for the reelection campaign of the head of world football's governing body.

The FIFA presidential elections are scheduled for June 1 during the organization's congress in Zurich. The longtime FIFA chief is being challenged by Mohamed Bin Hammam, the head of the Asian Football Confederation.
