It has been revealed that a European crime syndicate bribed Canadian soccer players in order to fix a game between Trois-Rivières and Toronto.

The international match fixing scheme allowed the syndicate to profit from online bets made on the matches.

At least one match in the CSL, the semi-professional league which runs in Ontario and Quebec, has been fixed. The fixing was unveiled by hundreds of hours of police wiretaps obtained from a German court case on one of Europe’s biggest ever sports-fixing scandals.

The wiretaps indicated that a game in Trois-Rivières between Attak, and the Toronto Croatia, which took place on September 12th 2009, was targeted by the syndicate.

Documents released by the court show that around €15,000 was paid in bribes to a number of players on the Toronto Croatia team.

The court in Germany discovered that the crime syndicate had been bribing players in matching ranging from the Champions League to World Cup qualifiers.

So far six people have been convicted for their role in match fixing with two men from Croatia jailed for five-and-a-half years.

The four others were jailed for varying lengths of time and there are a further six men on trial in Germany.
