Soccer: New rules to suspend salaries for match-fixing

(ANSA) - Rome, August 7 - Italian soccer players involved in future betting scandals will have their salaries suspended for one year, according to new rules signed into place on Tuesday. The rules come in an agreement between Italian professional footballers' association AIC and Serie A club owners. Salary suspensions will apply to players involved in match-fixing scandals similar to the recent 'Last Bet' incident that led to 40 arrests. The case has rocked the Italian soccer world again after Juventus were relegated and stripped of two Serie A titles for involvement in the Calciopoli match-fixing scandal in 2006. The rules will also apply to players found guilty of taking performance-enhancing drugs and engaging in other illegal sporting practices.
