UEFA has initiated disciplinary proceedings against Besiktas and Fenerbahce in relation to match-fixing allegations.

Later this month, the two Turkish teams will face UEFA’s Control and Disciplinary Body.

Steaua Bucharest will also face UEFA in relation to the admission criteria for participating in UEFA competitions.

Besiktas and two club officials are presently under investigation over match-fixing charges. The fixes are alleged to have taken place around the 2011 Turkish Cup final.

Their case will be heard along with Steaua, on 21 June at the House of European Football in Nyon.

Twenty-four hours later, Fenerbahce and five club officials will face the same panel, after the UEFA disciplinary inspector had submitted his findings of an investigation.

Fenerbahce were banned from the 2011-12 Champions League because of match-fixing and club president Aziz Yildirim was jailed for six years after findings implicated him.

Yoldirim was later convicted of match-fixing and offering bribes to players or club officials.

The decisions of the panel will be announced during the week after 24 June.
