The Premier Division Standing Committee (PDSC) position in the fight against match-fixing in Maltese football and a series of measures to be adopted were discussed in a meeting with Malta FA general secretary Bjorn Vassallo and Franz Tabone, the association’s Integrity Officer, earlier this week.

In a statement issued yesterday evening, the PDSC said that during the meeting various aspects of the stance to be taken to counter the threat of match-fixing were thoroughly analysed.

Club representatives also agreed to stay in unison and protect the game from those persons or organisations that are damaging the sport through their illicit actions.

“We all agreed on the need to join forces and work on a combined strategy to rid the game of those with suspect actions,” the PDSC said.

The PDSC has full confidence in those dedicating long hours to club administration, conducting their operation with great res-ponsibility and honesty.

“Our proposals were discussed and agreed upon during previous PDSC meetings and now we shall be forwarding our suggestions to the Malta FA for consideration and, eventually, to be implemented,” the statement added.

The PDSC again reiterated their full backing to the Malta Football Association and the programme against match-fixing, urging the country’s authorities to support the association in the bid to free the sport from corrupt practices and criminal activities.
