The management of Brno football club have announced that they are introducing lie detector tests for their own players in a bid to ascertain whether they have deliberately tried to fix the result of games. A club official said the move was nothing sinister, and would prevent rumours that their players were guilty of match-fixing. A clause in the contracts of new signings commits them to undergoing polygraph tests twice a season. The Moravian club, who lie second from bottom of the Czech first division, have also fined players who performed poorly in the first half of the season.
