Serbian federation sanctions two clubs for match-fixing spotted by UEFA
The clubs of GFK Jagodina and Borac 1926 have “undermined and threatened the integrity” of the matches they played against Trajal and Zeleznicar respectively, the FSS said in a statement.
Last month, GFK Jagodina lost 3-0 to Trajal and Borac 1-0 to Zeleznicar.
As a result, GFK Jagodina was fined six million dinars (51,032 euros) and Borac 1926 a fine of 4 million dinars (34,021 euros).
The FSS also deprived both clubs of six points in the standings of the current Serbian 2nd Division Championship.
UEFA last week asked the FSS to investigate suspicions of match-fixing after suspicious sports bets emerged in Europe and Asia involving large sums of money.
