Ten-year ban for Maltese player Sammut

Maltese footballer Kevin Sammut has been banned from football-related activity for ten years for breaching UEFA's principles of integrity and sportsmanship.

Maltese footballer Kevin Sammut has been banned from exercising any football-related activity for ten years by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body, for breaching the principles of integrity and sportsmanship laid down in Article 5 of the UEFA disciplinary regulations (involvement in attempting to manipulate the outcome of a match).

The match under investigation was the UEFA European Championship Group C qualifying match between Norway and Malta (4-0) in Oslo on 2 June 2007.

With regard to the Malta players Kenneth Scicluna and Stephen Wellman, the findings of the disciplinary inspector are insufficient to take any disciplinary action against them.

FIFA will be requested to extend the present decision so as to give it worldwide effect.

An appeal may be lodged within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decision.
