Fenerbahce to submit 'match-fixing' defence to UEFA

Jun 20 2013, 6:10am CDT | by

Ankara, June 20 (IANS) Turkish football club Fenerbahce will submit its defence on match-fixing charges at the House of European Football in Nyo Thursday.

Ankara, June 20 — Turkish football club Fenerbahce will submit its defence on match-fixing charges at the House of European Football in Nyo Thursday.

In its defence, Fenerbahce will argue against being punished for the same crime twice and inconsistencies in UEFA's treatment of the club, reports Xinhua.

The Istanbul-based team was summoned by the Control and Disciplinary Body of UEFA June 10 regarding charges first leveled against the club at the end of the 2010-11 season. Also summoned by European football's governing body were fellow Istanbul team Besiktas and FC Steaua Bucharest of Romania.

"The UEFA disciplinary inspector has submitted his findings to the Control and Disciplinary Body, in the context of disciplinary proceedings against this club and five club officials," read a statement on UEFA's website.

The findings will be presented Saturday, June 22, and the results will be announced within the following week.

Earlier in the year, Europol announced its findings involving a vast criminal rigging and betting organisation that fixed matches in top football matches around the world. Turkey has struggled with the distinction of having the most rigged matches in the Europol investigation.

Michel Platini refuses to return World Cup watch FIFA says broke ethics rules

Sep 19 2014 2:38pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Brazil organizing committee gave the FIFA executive committee very expensive watches at the World Cup. It was a gift. Maybe a bribe. Who knows. But it definitely broke FIFA's new ethics rule that no members of the organization may not accept gifts "symbolic or trivial value," seeing as they were worth $27,000. A few FIFA executive committee members immediately returned the watches and ...
