Czech FA wants investigation of club over rigging suspicions

The Czech Football Association have called on the police’s organised crime unit to investigate Czech third division club Mohelnice over suspicions of match-fixing involving a betting mafia based in Asia, the news website iDnes.cz reported.

A representative of the Moravia-based Mohelnice told Sport.cz that they had only heard about the move from the media but would cooperate with any investigation.

Suspicions centre on at least two games involving the club in the first half of this season. A Chinese company named Anping, which has faced similar accusations in Portugal and Ireland, entered the organisation last summer.
