Minerva Punjab FC players report fixing approach

Minerva Punjab report match-fixing approach made to their players

Football in India is slowly finding its feet and lo and behold the ugly head of match-fixing has resurfaced.

Indian football was rocked by allegations of match-fixing after Minerva Punjab FC owner Ranjit Bajaj claimed that two of his players had been approached by bookies with offers of Rs 30 lakh to fix matches in the I-League.

If there is a silver lining to the approach made to fix I-League games this term, it is how promptly Minerva Punjab FC have flagged it.


He expressed concern that bribes were offered to two of his players in an alleged match-fixing attempt. Bajaj was quick to take action as he informed the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and Asian Football Confederation (AFC) about the matter and took to Twitter to disclose the news. "Really hope NO MATCH OFFICIALS or PLAYERS fall in this trap". We need to be ultra careful now /the cats out of the bag / it has arrived in our country /the curse of disgusting people trying to ruin our handsome game with the immediate lure of easy big money / really hope NO MATCH OFFICIALS or PLAYERS fall in this trap.

"On Wednesday, one of our foreign players told me that he had received an approach over Facebook. Once we receive that, Siraj will initiate whatever action needs to be taken", he said while adding, "Our intention is to try and stop any kind of malpractice". "We have the screen shots and other details, all of which have been shared". "Ideally, I would like to lodge an FIR but I will have to wait and see how the AIFF and AFC react", he said. The AIFF integrity officer also has a meeting with players of each team before the start of the season to tell them about how to recognise unscrupulous advances and how they can report them to AIFF. Some players may not even make the money after playing a few seasons of the I-League. Minerva have reported the incident, and we are awaiting a detailed report from them. They have accumulated 22 points and have a three-point lead over second-placed East Bengal with a match in hand. They will travel to Kolkata again to play East Bengal on the 30th before they move ito their new home in the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex.
