FIFA extends fixing bans worldwide

Match-fixing bans on 58 Chinese football players and officials will be extended worldwide by FIFA.

• Shanghai Shenhua stripped of title

The 58 were banned by the Chinese Football Association on February 18 follow a three-year clean-up of corruption in Chinese sport.

In a statement, FIFA said: "The chairman of the FIFA disciplinary committee has extended the sanctions to have worldwide effect. In taking those sanctions and notifying FIFA of them, the CFA has emphasised its on-going commitment to stamping out all forms of match-fixing and corruption in the game."

Twenty-five of the guilty parties will receive five-year bans while the remaining 33 are banned from all football activities for life. All were cases related to incidents of match-fixing taking place in the 1990s and early 2000s.

The former head of Chinese football, Nan Yong, was sentenced to ten-and-a-half years for taking bribes worth more than 1.48 million yuan (£157,000) while his predecessor Xie Yalong received the same sentence and was fined 200,000 yuan (£21000).

Former deputy head of the CFA Yang Yimin and World Cup referee Lu Jun were also among the 33 banned from football for life.

Four former Chinese national team players have been jailed for up to six years as part of the investigations and trials conducted between 2010 and 2012 by Chinese judicial authorities.

FIFA have been especially keen to crack down on corruption following Europol's recent announcement that 680 matches worldwide were suspected to have been fixed in a global betting scam.
