Code of conduct for players as part of drive against match-fixing

PLAYERS at all of Scotland's senior clubs will be issued with copies of a code of conduct aimed at fighting match-fixing as part of an educational drive by the players' union, the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Scotland.

The code has been devised by the world players' union FIFPro for the UEFA-backed Don't Fix It project and will be distributed to all 42 of PFA Scotland's club representatives.

Each rep will also receive an information poster to display in their dressing room and enough copies of the code for youth players as well as first-team members. Scotland have been joined by England, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Romania and Slovenia in participating in the programme.

Jack Ross, the PFA Scotland communications officer, said: "It's about us being proactive in dealing with a number of issues that currently face players in the game, and match fixing is one of them.

"We will follow this up with the face-to-face delivery of information on visits to the clubs. It's important we get across as much information as possible to members and help them enjoy long careers in football."
