First division match called off due to excessive betting on outcome
Cyprus Football Association (CFA) called the bookmakers to invalidate bets placed on a first division match between Enosis Neon Paralimni and Ermis Aradippou after it was indefinitely postponed for "unreasonably excessive" betting on the outcome. As CFA put it, the unusual action was taken to "protect the sport and the teams".
"We repeat our determination to eliminate the problem of potentially fixed matches, while at the same time we issue an appeal to the state for help. The FA cannot on its own eliminate the problem that has plagued world football in recent years," said CFA spokesperson.
Various actions has been taken in order to solve the problem: betting companies are urged to enter into information-sharing agreements with the association that focuses on betting on Cypriot football teams, while the CFA plans meetings with the finance ministry and legislators where together they will look into the possible measures for the prevention of potential match-fixing.
