The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) provisionally suspends four Laos players for alleged match manipulation

Press Release

7 November 2016 - The Deputy Chairman of the AFC Disciplinary Committee has provisionally suspended four (4) Laos players for sixty (60) days for various violations of the AFC Disciplinary Code and AFC Code of Ethics related to suspected match manipulation.

The players were registered at the AFC Solidarity Cup 2016 and participated in the first match of the competition. As their ongoing participation provided a direct threat to the integrity of the competition, the Deputy Chairman acted accordingly on Saturday.

The players are:

  • Saynakhonevieng Phommapanya
  • Chintana Souksavath
  • Moukda Souksavath
  • Phatthana Syvilay

The provisional suspensions relate not only to the AFC Solidarity Cup but also to suspected manipulation of multiple matches committed by the representative teams of Laos since 2010. The investigation (which is in conjunction with the FIFA Integrity Unit and Sportradar) is ongoing and not limited to those players provisionally suspended.
