Bribery penalties confirmed for top Czech club
The Czech soccer federation has fined top-division club Olomouc $213,600 and deducted nine points from its league total for match-fixing.
The federation's disciplinary committee also fined Olomouc goalkeeper Petr Drobisz $10,680 and banned him from soccr for 18 months for handing over $16,020 to Bohemians Prague players to lose a game at the end of the 2008-09 season.
Olomouc won the match 3-0 and qualified for European competition.
The disciplinary committee originally imposed those punishments on Aug. 18 but the federation's auditing committee revoked the initial ruling on Sept. 26, citing serious procedural mistakes.
Also, Drobisz and two former Bohemians players were charged with bribery and face trials.
