Collaboration with betting companies that highlighted suspicious betting patterns has enabled UEFA to single out and take action against the Macedonian football club FK Pobeda on allegations of match fixing.
The allegations have their roots in a UEFA Champions League first qualifying round game between FK Pobeda and FC Pyunik on 13 July 2004, and the UEFA case is based on reports received from the betting industry on irregular betting patterns and the declarations of several witnesses. The Control and Disciplinary Body will deal with the case on 17 April 2009, UEFA has announced.
FK Pobeda, its president and one player have been charged for being in breach of the principles of integrity and sportsmanship by manipulating the outcome of a UEFA match to gain an undue advantage for themselves and a third party.
