Match Fixing

The Football Association is to examine match-fixing allegations involving a Championship match sent to them by the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.

Bookmakers reportedly detected a "massive movement" in bets in Asia in an unspecified Championship match at around half-time.

As well as the FA, the Sunday Telegraph has sent a document to the Gambling Commission over the betting patterns.

"We will consider any evidence brought to our attention," said the FA.

British betting exchange SpreadEx first notified of the unusual action.

In the Asian gambling market it is common to place a handicap on one of the teams, according to The Telegraph. In this case the handicap made an enormous, unexplained swing that would indicate a major on-field event when nothing of that nature had occurred. However, later in the match a major on-field event did occur.

After investigating what our source described as "strange patterns" in betting, The Sunday Telegraph sent a document to the FA and the Gambling Commission on Friday. An FA spokesman said: "We will consider any evidence which is brought to our attention. We are committed to thoroughly investigate any allegations of this nature."
