Ivan Toney charged over further alleged breaches of FA betting rules


Brentford striker Ivan Toney had been charged by the FA over a further 30 alleged breaches of betting rules, the governing body has announced.

Toney was last month charged by the FA over 232 alleged breaches of betting rules between 2017 and 2021. The FA has now alleged an additional 30 breaches between 2017 and 2019.

Toney has unitil 4 January to provide a response. The 26-year-old previously had until 24 November to respond to the initial 232 initial alleged breaches.

Toney was a contender for England’s World Cup squad but missed out on the 26-man group that travelled to Qatar due to “footballing reasons”, according to the head of the FA Mark Bullingham.

The FA has strict betting rules and if a player is found guilty it can impose “financial penalties, suspensions, and in some instances, lifetime bans”.

“Our private discussions with Ivan and his legal representatives on this matter continue.

Brentford host Tottenham on Boxing Day in the first Premier League match since the World Cup break.
