French Football League To Investigate 87 Players Over Betting On Games

Eighty-seven pro footballers "are to be investigated for betting on games" sanctioned by the French Football League (LFP), according to Julien Pretot of REUTERS. The LFP said in a statement, "In application of articles 124 of the FFF (French federation) regulations and 407 of the LFP regulations, the Disciplinary Committee will investigate 87 players from professional clubs who have failed to abide by the betting ban on LFP sanctioned games." The LFP added, however, that "there was no suspicion of any match-fixing" (REUTERS, 6/23).
