Three Maltese footballers have been accused of accepting brides to fix football matches.

The recent match-fixing case has only added to a list of reasons why people question if Maltese football is corrupt.

Maltese football has been questioned in recent years.

One of the three players involved is Ryan Camenzuli, a Maltese international who joined Floriana this summer on loan from Birkirkara FC.

The midfielder has been accused of accepting a bride in order to fix a recent Malta Under-21 game.

Camenzuli’s fellow professionals, Samir Arab of Balzan and his Floriana teammate Emanuel Briffa are also implicated.

Briffa was recently acquitted of match-fixing charges this summer alongside Kyle Cesare.

A former solider, Ronnie Mackay who was recently jailed for 18 months and fined €1,500 due to match-fixing, accused the footballers of their involvement in doing the same.

Mackay was involved with fixing a Maltese Under-21 fixture against Montenegro in March, where Malta lost 1-0.

Sides such as West Ham have recently played in Malta.
