Football: Federbet are facing mounting criticism from football clubs following their match-fixing allegations.
The anti-corruption organisation claimed 460 games had been the victim of betting fraud, which included a league game involving Notts County Ladies and Everton.
Their report was submitted to European parliament, but a number of clubs have hit out at the lack of evidence to back-up the allegations.
France’s Football Association raised concerns over the report as did England’s Football Conference where ten games were allegedly “fixed”.
“At this time there is no evidence that any of the fixtures specifically listed by Federbet, relating to our competition, have been the subject of report or investigation,” a Conference statement read.
“Therefore we are at a loss to understand what evidence may exist for Federbet to make such claims?
“Furthermore, as part of the robust monitoring system employed in England, such liaison is conducted in conjunction with the Gambling Commission, leading betting companies and other agencies appointed by the Football Association.”
Welsh club Connah’s Quay Nomads, one of hundreds of teams whose matches were allegedly fixed, also rejected Federbet’s allegations.
“We read with amazement the claims a match involving Connah’s Quay Nomads and Bala Town was subject to a match fixing investigation,” the club said. “We deny all knowledge of any allegations and welcome any further information that justifies such a claim.”
