Kick It Out issues statement on spot-fixing allegations
Kick It Out has issued the following statement regarding allegations of spot-fixing made in the ‘Sun on Sunday’ on 8 December:
“Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion campaign, has always operated an ‘open door’ policy with regards to helping and supporting community organisations and charitable foundations, particularly those with little or no resource.
“This includes administrative support and occasional use of office facilities. One of these organisations has been the Sodje Sports Foundation (SSF). Although no charges have been brought, the campaign is shocked by the allegations of match-fixing and will co-operate fully with any ensuing investigation, if required.”
