The FAI have released a statement on Bray Wanderers.

An investigation has been launched for alleged match-fixing during a friendly between two League of Ireland clubs on Friday.

Waterford beat Bray 5-0 but the game was the subject of a complaint and the Garda Síochonna have since gotten involved, culminating in a statement from the Football Association of Ireland on Wednesday night.

'The Football Association of Ireland has launched an investigation into alleged match-fixing surrounding the friendly match between Bray Wanderers FC and Waterford FC on Friday, September 8 at the Carlisle Grounds.

'Upon receipt of a complaint the FAI notified An Garda Siochanna and the Association has now launched an investigation into alleged breaches of FAI Rules.

'The FAI has a zero tolerance policy to match-fixing.'
