UEFA Appeals Body reduces Kyle Cesare’s ban

Following the investigation related to two UEFA European Under-21 Championship 2017 matches played in March 2016 by Malta against Montenegro and the Czech Republic and consequent decisions by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body, the UEFA Appeals Body has confirmed Manuel Briffa’s lifelong ban but Kyle Cesare had his punishment reduced to 10 years.

This was announced by the Malta Football Association during a meeting of the Council which was held on Tuesday.

In January, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body handed Emanuel Briffa and Kyle Cesare a lifelong ban for having acted in a manner that is likely to exert an unlawful or undue influence on the course and/or result of a match or competition

On the other hand, Samir Arab was banned for two years, Ryan Camenzuli for eighteen months, Llywelyn Cremona and Luke Montebello for one year for not immediately and voluntarily informing UEFA if approached in connection with activities aimed at influencing in an unlawful or undue manner the course and/or result of the game.
