Zlatan Ibrahimovic

European football’s administering body UEFA has opened a disciplinary investigation concerning Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s asserted financial interest in a betting company.

The AC Milan striker is alleged to own a stake in Bethard, and in March 2018 was officially declared as an ambassador for the firm.

At the hour of that declaration, the Malta-based betting site said Ibrahimovic would also take part in the on-going advancement of the organization’s contribution.

As per Article 31(4) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR), a UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector has been appointed to conduct a disciplinary investigation regarding a potential violation of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations by Mr. Zlatan Ibrahimović for having an alleged financial interest in a betting company.

FIFA regulations state that anyone found guilty of betting breaches could face a suspension from football of up to three years and a fine of up to $119,000.

As a general policy, FIFA’s judicial bodies don’t speculate on the application of the FIFA Code of Ethics or any other regulation.
Article 12 of UEFA’s Disciplinary Regulations states:

“The integrity of matches and competitions is violated, for example, by anyone who participates directly or indirectly in betting or similar activities relating to competition matches or who has a direct or indirect financial interest in such activities.”

In the mean time, Ibrahimovic’s agent Bethard has not reacted to UEFA’s investigation.
