FIFA question Zambian FA

FIFA has "opened disciplinary proceedings" against the Zambian Football Association for allegedly sneaking players suspended for match-fixing into the country outside of the transfer window.

It is claimed that up to eight athletes were brought into the African nation from Finland, and world football's governing body has commenced an investigation into the alleged breach of regulations.

A statement from FIFA on Saturday read: "On 19 February 2013, FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings against the Football Association of Zambia for having allegedly transferred and registered eight players in breach of the FIFA regulations governing the transfer of players.

"It appears that eight players were transferred from the Finland Football Association to the Football Association of Zambia outside of the Fifa Transfer Matching System (TMS), without an International Transfer Certificate (ITC), and outside of the registration period.

"In addition, the players were all suspended by the Finland Football Association for match-fixing offences and these sanctions were extended as to have worldwide effect by the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.

"At least four of the eight players apparently played in official matches in Zambia despite being suspended on a worldwide basis.

"The Football Association of Zambia is invited to provide its position to Fifa, together with any documentary evidence it might deem appropriate."
