UEFA initiates disciplinary proceedings following last year’s UEFA Under-21 matches

UEFA, European football’s governing body, has informed the Malta Football Association that it has initiated disciplinary proceedings in connection with its investigation into allegations of match-fixing attempts concerning two games played by the Malta Under-21 team last year.

The matches in question are the 2015-17 UEFA Championship Group 1 qualifiers, Malta vs Montenegro (0-1), played at the Hibernians Stadium on March 23, 2016, and Malta vs Czech Republic (0-7), played at the National Stadium on March 29, 2016.

The Malta Football Association will continue to assist and co-operate with UEFA during these proceedings, and will make no further comment until the disciplinary process has been concluded.
