NEW DELHI (AP) - Indian soccer is setting up an anti-corruption unit after clubs said they had been approached about fixing matches.

I-League chief executive Sunando Dhar said Tuesday that the teams Mumbai FC and Pune FC reported one-time approaches. He calls this a ''wake-up call'' for Indian soccer.

Though match-fixing is almost unheard of in the low-profile I-League, cricket's cash-rich Indian Premier League has been marred by fixing allegations.

Three cricketers, including former test pace bowler Shantakumaran Sreesanth, were arrested last year for fixing and banned for life.
