First Division club boss faces arrest following match-fixing and corruption allegations


South African football has been hit with allegations of match fixing and corruption, more prominently in the ABC Motsepe League, in recent weeks.

According to a reliable source at SAFA, the association has already suspended one referee and four assistants officials involved in allegations related to the club boss in Limpopo, who is expected to be officially charged by police for a criminal offence before the end of this week.

"There are big investigations by the police," the official at SAFA informs this website.

"There are match officials that have already been suspended and the police are expected to make arrests soon.

"SAFA should be releasing an official statement [today]."

The official could also not rule out the possibility of another official from a second First Division team based in Kwa-Zulu Natal being arrested, while names of clubs or persons involved could not be revealed as investigations are ongoing.

"We can't reveal [names] until the suspects are officially charged," he adds.
