Former national team players
Four former Chinese national team players, Mr Shen Si, Mr Oi Hong, Mr Jiang Jin and Mr Li Ming, have been found guilty of corruption.
The players were paid bribes to fix a Chinese league game, which resulted in their team, Shanghai Guoji, losing to Tianjin Teda in 2003.
Mr Si was sentenced to six years in prison and fined 500,000 yuan (US$78,500), whereas Mr Hong, Mr Jin and Mr Ming were given 5 and a half years and fined 500,000 yuan each.
The court confiscated 8 million yuan (US$1.27 million) of illegal takings from the players.
