Football Notes: French Government Set To Backtrack On 'Super Tax' Plan

French Ligue 1's leading clubs "could be handed some welcome news after French media reported that the country’s government is considering scaling back its controversial 75% rate of tax on high-earning individuals" (SOCCEREX, 9/12). ... Czech police "have charged 12 people suspected of match-fixing and illegal betting" in Czech football leagues and "summoned more than 20 others for questioning." Police "raided 15 homes and other premises in the probe, which the Czech FA said was triggered by the association's findings" (REUTERS, 9/12).
