FIFA hands Paraguayan Trovato life ban for match fixing

  • Print
The President of Paraguayan Club Olimpia, Marco Trovato, has received a lifetime football ban for match fixing, FIFA said on Monday. The 41-year-old was also fined 100,000 Swiss francs (around 108,000 U.S. dollars), the world football governing body said in a statement on Monday. FIFA's disciplinary committee found Trovato guilty of "manipulation of football matches and competitions" and of failing to collaborate with investigators. "The decision to sanction Mr Trovato is related to a series of matches that took place between 2018 and 2019, while he was president of the club," FIFA said, without providing further details.
