The Court of Arbitration for Sport has upheld an eight-year Europe-wide ban imposed by Uefa on Macedonian club FC Pobeda for match-fixing.
Uefa's life ban on club president Aleksandar Zabrcanec also stands. However the life ban imposed on the player involved, Nikolce Zdraveski, has been overturned on appeal.
The investigation centred on a Champions League qualifying tie between Pobeda and Armenian side Pyunik over two legs in July 2004.
Charges were brought against Pobeda due to reports of irregular betting patterns and statements from a number of witnesses taken.
CAS ruled that "the evidence brought by Uefa was sufficient to establish that the matches between Pobeda and Pyunik were fixed."
After exploring betting irregularities, Uefa's disciplinary panel ruled in 2009 that the two men had fixed the outcome of the qualifying match in which Pobeda conceded three goals in the first half during the home leg. Pobeda drew the second leg 1-1 in Armenia, losing 4-2 on aggregate.
