Bribery penalties confirmed for top division club

BY foxsports • October 6, 2011

The Czech football federation has fined top-division club Olomouc four million koruna ($213,600) and deducted nine points from its league total for match-fixing.

The federation's disciplinary committee also fined Olomouc goalkeeper Petr Drobisz 200,000 koruna ($10,680) and banned him from football for 18 months for handing over 300,000 koruna ($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.

Separately, Drobisz and two former Bohemians players were charged with bribery and face trials.
