FIFA hands Paraguayan Marco Trovato life ban for match fixing

Zurich, Sep 29 (IANS) FIFA has handed a lifetime football ban to Marco Trovato, president of Paraguayan club Olimpia, for match fixing. Along with the ban, Trovato has also been fined 100,000 Swiss francs (around $108,000), FIFA has said in a statement.

FIFA’s disciplinary committee found the 41-year-old guilty of “manipulation of football matches and competitions” and of failing to comply with his duty to collaborate during disciplinary proceedings.

“The decision to sanction Trovato is related to a series of matches that took place between 2018 and 2019, while he was president of the club,” the world football governing body said on Monday without providing further details.

It added that Trovato, who has been president of the Asuncion club since 2014, had 10 days to lodge an appeal.
