Brentford FC Issues Statement on Ivan Toney’ Betting Scandal

The situation involving Ivan Toney has left Brentford FC supporters perplexed, and the football club has now issued statement regarding the betting scandal.

The Englishman was charged with breaking the Football Association’ wagering regulations. The suspected violations, according to reports from the association, occurred between 2017 when Toney was at Newcastle and 2021 when he transferred from Peterborough, which was initially ranked at 232, to Brentford.

After allegedly breaking the Football Association’ betting rules an extra 30 times, the England international has been charged second time.

On Tuesday, December 20, 2022, Brentford released statement on its website. The player has been accused by the FA of new alleged betting rule violations, the club has confirmed.

The Bees confirmed that private conversations have continued between Toney and his representatives on the situation.


“Ivan Toney has been charged with misconduct in relation to alleged breaches of The FA’ Betting Rules,” an FA statement read.

“In addition to the previous charge, it is alleged that the Brentford FC forward breached FA Rule E8 further 30 times between 14 March 2017 and 18 February 2019.

“Ivan Toney has until Wednesday 4 January 2023 to provide response.”

Current FA rules forbid players in the top six divisions of English men’ football from betting on any football match anywhere in the world, as well as related markets such as transfers and manager changes.

The rules extend to the players in the Women’ Super League and Women’ Championship.

Following the initial charges last month, Brentford released statement saying: “The club has been in discussion with Ivan and his legal representatives about this matter and those conversations will continue privately.

“We will make no further comment until the matter has been completed.”
