More game fixing allegations shock China

Chinese Super League team Chonqing Qiche has sacked three players on suspicion of match fixing according to the Beijing News, as quoted by Team CEO Yin Mingshan said, “"The team definitely has problems. Some of the games this season have been very strange - after 70 or 80 minutes of good play, something has happened at the last minute.”

Separately, three Chinese Super League clubs officially complained to the Chinese Football Association about last weekend’s refereeing decisions. Shenyang Ginde alleged that all three officials in its game with Shandong Luneng were biased. Chongqing Qiche accused the referee in the Sichhuan Guancheng fixture of deliberately making controversial judhgements and Beijing Hyundai have complained that their referee deliberately gave Liaoning FC a penalty kick.
