The President of the Football Federation of Ukraine informed about the reduction of fixed matches

The President of the Football Federation of Ukraine Andriy Pavelko announced the reduction of fixed matches. According to him, this situation can be explained by the anti-corruption legislation that has recently come into force.

By the way, manipulation with the results in professional sports leads to lifelong disqualification of a player as part the Ukrainian national team. This punishment affected the most fragile segment of Ukrainian sports – Under-21 and Under-19 leagues.

Pavelko says that minor leagues are exposed to fixed matches to the greater extent when compared to others due to the influence of the Asian bookmaker market. The President of the Football Federation of Ukraine expressed special gratitude to the Chairman of the Committee on Ethics and Fair Play Francesco Baranca for the successful combat of sports manipulations.
