English FA Bans Harry Toffolo For Gambling

Nottingham Forest defender Harry Toffolo has been banned for five months by the English Football Association after the 28-year-old admitted to 375 different breaches of betting rules.

The ban will be suspended until the end of the 2024-25 season, meaning the player will still be available to suit up for his club. He will also pay a £20,956 fine related to the case. Toffolo admitted to betting on matches from a period ranging between 2014 and 2017, which is in violation of FA Rule E8, which prohibits players, coaches, and officials from betting on football matches anywhere in the world, either directly or indirectly.

During the times of the bets, Toffolo was playing for multiple clubs, including Peterborough United, Rotherham United, and Swindon Town.

News of the ban comes after Brentford striker Ivan Toney was banned for eight months after the player was found to have bet on hundreds of matches over several years as well. Additionally, Port Vale defender Mitch Clark was also banned for three months for betting violations.

No comment from the player was available at press time.
