CAF Slams $200,000 Fine On Eto’o Over Principle Of Ethics Violation

The Confederation of African Football, CAF, has imposed a fine of $200,000 on the President of Fédération Camerounaise de Football (‘’FECAFOOT’’), Samuel Eto’o Fils.

According to the statement released on the CAF website, the continental football body’s disciplinary board imposed the fine on the FECAFOOT president for violating the principles of ethics, integrity and sportsmanship as provided in Article 2 paragraph 3 of the CAF Statutes.

Eto’o was found to have violated the said article by signing a brand ambassador contract with betting company, 1XBET, in exchange for remuneration.

“However, the Disciplinary Board found Mr Eto’o to have seriously violated the principles of ethics, integrity and sportsmanship as provided in Article 2 paragraph 3 of the CAF Statutes by signing a Brand Ambassador contract with the company 1XBET in exchange for remuneration and consequently fined Mr Eto’o an amount of 200,000 USD,” the statement reads.

However, CAF adjudged him and a certain Mr Valentin Nkwain not guilty of match manipulation, saying there was not sufficient proof to prove the allegations.

The Statement explained: “Mr Eto’o was facing charges of alleged manipulation of football matches and violating the principles of ethics and integrity.

“The Disciplinary Board ruled that as it stands, there is insufficient proof to find Mr Samuel Eto’o Fils and Mr Valentin Nkwain guilty of match manipulation.” reads.
