Fourth football notification received

The Cyprus Football Association (CFA) has received a fresh notification about suspicious betting activity related to a fixture played on last Monday.

According to the CFA, the notification concerns the Apoel Nicosia versus Ethinkos Ahnas game, which the home team won 2-0.

The CFA said a lot of bets were placed just before kick-off, but mainly during the game, on Apoel winning with at least a three-goal difference. Punters also wagered that at least four goals would be scored in the game.

The notification said the effort to manipulate the result apparently failed “but this doesn’t make us less concerned, from the moment the betting activity, even when the score was 0-0 at half time, continued to be intense.”

The file will be forwarded to the CFA’s discipline committee for review.

This was the fourth notification in eight match days.

Last season, Cyprus received 21 notifications concerning suspicious games. In total, the CFA has received 59 notifications in recent years.
