More Chinese clubs face action

By Reuters

More Chinese clubs are being investigated for match-fixing and will be harshly punished if found guilty, according to the new head of the Chinese Football Association.

"Guangzhou, Chengdu and Qingdao are not the only clubs under investigation," said Wei Di, whose predecessor Nan Yong was one of more than 20 officials arrested or detained in the probe.

"Other teams are also being investigated but we will not name them until all the evidence comes out. We will impose heavy punishments."
