FAI investigatIng unusual betting in Sligo Rovers v Limerick game in the FAI Cup

 

The Football Association of Ireland can confirm it is now investigating unusual betting patterns around the recent FAI Cup game between Sligo Rovers v Limerick FC.

The investigation is along similar lines to the one currently underway into the First Division fixture between Shelbourne and Limerick in April.

Both investigations were launched following the receipt of reports from UEFA to the FAI concerning unusual betting patterns around the two games.

An FAI spokesman confirmed: “We have acted on the back of the UEFA report into two Limerick games, against Shelbourne in April and Sligo Rovers last month, and our investigations are ongoing.

“We are committed to a zero tolerance policy on match fixing in conjunction with UEFA. The FAI, as stated earlier, is also aware of a Garda investigation into match fixing.”
