Top News CAF Fine Eto’o $200,000 Over Betting Company Ambassadorial Role

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has imposed a $200,000 fine on Samuel Eto’o Fils, a former international footballer and President of the Fédération Camerounaise de Football (FECAFOOT).

The fine is levied on the FECAFOOT president for breaking the values of ethics, integrity, and sportsmanship outlined in Article 2 paragraph 3 of the CAF Statutes.

He was judged to have violated the article by signing a contract as a Brand Ambassador for the company 1XBET in exchange for remuneration.

He did, however, escape punishment in a larger charge of match rigging and manipulation.

Eto’o was charged with allegedly manipulating football matches and breaking ethical and integrity rules.

The Disciplinary Board determined that there was insufficient evidence to find him and Valentin Nkwain guilty of match tampering.
