Albanian club Skenderbeu banned by UEFA for match fixing
TIRANA, Albania (AP) — Albanian league champion KF Skenderbeu says it has been banned from UEFA competitions for a year for match-fixing.
In a statement on Monday on its website, the club which won the league title for the sixth straight time this year said UEFA “unfairly suspended the Skenderbeu club for one season (2016-2017) from Europe’s cups.”
UEFA made investigations after doubts about some results in the national league and European competition.
The club was sure that “the right denied from UEFA will be won at the CAS by our club,” adding it has hired specialized lawyers to represent it at CAS in Lausanne.
Before the club said the probe was based on information from betting companies, fans, and the media.
