PRAGUE (AP) – The Czech football federation has fined top-division club Olomouc four million koruna ($235,350) and deducted competition points for match-fixing.
The federation's disciplinary committee ruled on Thursday that Olomouc will have nine points deducted for paying a bribe.
Also, Olomouc goalkeeper Petr Drobisz was fined 200,000 koruna ($11,750) and banned from football for 18 months for handing over 300,000 koruna ($17,650) to Bohemians Prague players to lose a game at the end of the 2008-09 season.
Olomouc, which won the match 3-0 and qualified for European competition, denied any wrongdoing, and its director Jaromir Gajda said the club will appeal.
Separately, Drobisz and two former Bohemians players - Miroslav Obermajer and David Zoubek - were charged with bribery by state prosecution and face trials.
