FIFA hands match-fixing bans to 74

ZURICH -- FIFA has banned 74 more officials and players from world soccer for helping fix matches, this time in Italy and South Korea.

FIFA says it imposed sanctions on 70 people, including 11 who were banned for life, after a series of cases prosecuted by Italian soccer authorities.

FIFA says the charges involved "match-fixing (direct involvement or omission to report match-fixing), illegal betting or corrupt organization (association to commit illicit acts)."

FIFA says the four new South Korean cases follow worldwide sanctions imposed on 10 people last year and a further 41 last month.

The global sanctions were announced Wednesday, two days after FIFA banned 58 people found guilty of match-fixing offenses in China. FIFA can apply worldwide sanctions after national associations complete their own investigations and impose bans.
