Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua have been found guilty of match-fixing.
The Chinese Football Association have stripped the club of their 2003 CSL title and banned for life 33 people involved in other match-fixing, bribery and gambling situations.
Shenhua, who recently lost former Chelsea stars Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka to Galatasaray and Juventus respectively, have been found guilty of fixing a match against Shaanxi Guoli during the 2003 season and have been fined €120,000 and deducted six points from the 2013 CSL season.
"These violations of CFA regulations include match-fixing, bribing giving and taking, and gambling," a spokesman for the CFA discipline commission said on Monday.
“There has been a lack of legal criteria, imperfect soccer system and lax supervision and management.
"Some violations dated back to over 10 years ago."
