New notification received from Uefa

Yet another suspicious betting notification has been received by the island’s football association (CFA) concerning a second division fixture held last weekend.

According to the CFA, Uefa has sent a file with information about suspicious betting during the match last Saturday between Othellos Athienou and Ethnikos Assias. The game finished 2-0 to Othellos.

The high betting observed after kick-off indicated that punters had prior knowledge that Othellos would win the game, the CFA said.

This was the seventh notification this season; out of the previous six, five concern the top-flight league and one was a cup fixture.

Suspicious betting notifications have increased in frequency lately, forcing Uefa to intervene and raise the pressure on an otherwise nonchalant CFA to take draconian measures immediately.

The CFA has denied it was not doing anything but critics point out to the worsening phenomenon as proof of its ineffectiveness.

CFA chairman Costakis Koutsokoumnis announced on Monday that the party was over for those making money from fixed games only to have his insurance firm bombed two days later.
