Fenerbahce facing UCL ban

UEFA are set to put Fenerbahce in front of its disciplinary body later this month, with the Turkish side facing another Champions League ban due to match-fixing charges.

Five Fenerbahce officials - believed to include president Aziz Yildirim - will face UEFA's panel. This follows the club being banned from the 2011-12 Champions League because of another match-fixing scandal.

UEFA also charged Besiktas in relation to match-fixing, while disciplinary proceedings have also been opened against Steaua Bucharest for breach of Champions League participation regulations. This follows the Romanian club's owner Gigi Becali being jailed for three years for offering a £1.5 million cash bribe to rival players to a throw a match.

A UEFA statement read: "Following the investigation into alleged match-fixing activities involving Fenerbahce, the UEFA disciplinary inspector has now submitted his findings to the control and disciplinary body, in the context of disciplinary proceedings against this club and five club officials.

"This case will be heard by the UEFA control and disciplinary body on Saturday June 22.

"Proceedings have also been opened against Besiktas and two club officials in relation to match-fixing activities which are alleged to have taken place during the 2011 Turkish Cup final.

"Proceedings have also been opened against Steaua Bucharest on the basis of... the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League regulations, relating to the admission criteria for participation in UEFA competitions."

The decisions in the cases will be announced in the week starting June 24.
