Russia to Get Tough on Match-Fixing

A law to curb match-fixing has been submitted to the Russian parliament by the Kremlin.

      Ahead of the 2018 World Football Cup to be held in Russia, the country wants to make sure fair play rules apply off the pitch as well on it.

      The bill is expected to toughen legislation for corruption in sports for referees, officials, players and bookmakers alike, with fines up to 1 million roubles, or some $30,000, and prison terms of 7 years.
