Czech probe into match-fixing allegation

The Czech football federation (FACR) announced today that a probe has been opened into allegations of match-fixing in the country's top flight.

The probe follows claims made by referee Tomas Adamek that he was offered a 200,000-Krona bribe (7,800 euros) to influence the result of a Czech first division match in favour of defending league champions Viktoria Pilsen at FK Jablonec.

Vitoria Pilsen, who are competing in this season's Europa League, went on to win the tie 2-0.

"The evidence (of Adamek) only concerns one match but this affair is sure to be more wide reaching," said Jiri Gonda, chairmain of the federation's disciplinary committee.

Viktoria Pilsen officials have denied all accusations of attempts at match fixing.

The affair is already to subject of a police investigation.
