The Asian Football Confederation has set up a task force to help combat matchfixing in the continent.

The announcement from the sport's regional governing body came a day after an INTERPOL-led conference into result rigging closed in Kuala Lumpur.

AFC General Secretary Alex Soosay says the task force will collaborate with all stakeholders and educate member associations on ways to combat the practice and introduce mechanisms to fight it.
