CSA, FIFA to work together on inquiry into alleged CSL match-fixing By Steven Sandor Posted on May 13, 2011 4 0 795 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Canadian soccer followers will have to wait for the German courts to wrap up their match-fixing trials before we have any definitive answers over allegations a 2009 CSL match between the Trois-Rivieres Attak and Toronto Croatia was rigged. “The Canadian Soccer Association is taking the lead on the matter and will be working with FIFA,” said CSL chairman Vincent Ursini. “They are waiting for the German court case to complete its findings.” Last weekend, a court in Bochum, Germany, going over the evidence provided by Croat match fixers Ante Sapina and Marijo Cvrtak, heard that a Sept. 12, 2009 game between the Attak and Toronto Croatia had been targeted. Toronto Croatia has publicly denied any wrongdoing. The Attak, at the time a reserve team of the Montreal Impact, won the match by a 4-1 score. Toronto Croatia missed a penalty in that game and also allowed a goal when a long free kick by Alex Surprenant, who now plays with FC Edmonton of the NASL, got through the TC keeper. The match-fixing trial continues; the Maltese Football Federation has now launched an inquiry after allegations surfaced from the court that its 4-0 Euro 2008 qualifying loss to Norway was fixed after Cvrtak met with members of the Maltese side.
