UEFA v. Skėnderbeu: A review of the proceedings and the use of UEFA’s Betting Fraud Detection System

At the time of publication, the first leg of the qualifying matches for the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League have taken place. KS Skėnderbeu, despite finishing the Albanian Superliga 2017/18 season at the top of the table, were not eligible to compete in these matches due to ongoing Court of Arbitration for Sport (‘CAS’) proceedings over the club’s alleged involvement in match-fixing at a level never before dealt with by UEFA.
