PRAGUE: The Czech football association said it had sanctioned the country’s top-flight side Sigma Olomouc with a loss of nine points and $234,000 for a 2009 match-fixing scandal. The association’s disciplinary committee fined Olomouc for an attempt to bribe Bohemians Prague players ahead of their league game in May 2009 to secure a place in the Europa League. Sigma’s keeper Petr Drobisz, accused of having delivered the money, was handed an 18-month ban and a fine.
