The Betting Allegations against the Soccer Star Increase

The additional charges increase the number of betting allegations against Toney from 232 to 262. Back in November, the soccer player was charged with 232 alleged breaches of the FA rules on betting. At the time, the FA claimed that the breaches occurred between February 2017 and January 2021. Now, judging by the latest development, the number of alleged breaches rises but additional details are yet to be confirmed.

Upon facing the initial charges, Toney said on social media that he is assisting the FA with their probe. “I am a proud Englishman and it has always been my childhood dream to play for my country at a World Cup Finals,” wrote the soccer player at the time. Since November, Toney hasn’t posted anything via social media on the topic. Still, back then, online users showed support for the soccer player.

Betting by professional athletes isn’t forbidden only with soccer but for other sports such as hockey, baseball and tennis. In fact, only recently, the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA), announced bans against a Chilean and Chinese player but the sanctions did not come because of betting, but rather match-fixing allegations.
