According to a report by Reuters, the Football Federation of Belarus (BFF) announced on Thursday that the Belarusian champions Shakhtyor Soligorsk were ultimately convicted of match-fixing and forfeited the title of the Premier League championship they earned the previous season.

The BFF discovered that officials from Shakhtyor Club coordinated match-fixing and gave unlawful monetary rewards to other clubs in the league.

As a result, the BFF deducted 30 points from Shakhtyor for this season and will remove 20 points for the next season.

Energetik-BGU Minsk finished as the runner-up in the previous season, while Belshina Bobruisk finished in last place.

According to the Belarusian state-owned BeITA news agency, Bate Borisov will be taking the position of Shakhtyor in the qualification for the Champions League the next season.
