Soccer officials suspended for life

Armenian referee Andranik Arsenyan and assistant Hovhannes Avagyan, were banned for life by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body (CDB). The suspension was granted in an attempt to manipulate a game result of an Europa League match last month between FC Inter Turku and Vikingur.

The officials admitted trying to change the results of the second-leg fixture which ended 1-0, Vikingur in favour. The UEFAs betting fraud detection system (BFDS) noticed some suspicious patterns which lead to a further investigation.
