Brazilian referee Edilson Pereira de Carvalho was banned from football for life in October 2005. He influenced results in the Brazilian top division for an illegal online betting site run from Sao Paulo.

chaotic

Pereira de Carvalho was paid between R$10,000 and R$15,000 per fixed match.
The repercussions were chaotic for Brazilian football.

Eleven championship matches had to be replayed after Pareira de Carvalho - a Fifa referee before the controversy came to light - admitted favouring sides in return for a fee.

Replaying the matches caused another problem. The new results enabled Corinthians to make up points they had lost earlier in the season and claim the title at the expense of rivals Internacional - who would have taken the crown had the original results stood.

96

In 2011 Pereira, the Brazilian FA, referee Paolo Jose Danelon and an individual named Nagig Fayad received a 96 million dollars fine. Most of the fine went to Pereira and Fayad for morally corrupting football. Pereira had fixed 11 matches in 2005.
96 million dollars. Really.

BANNED FOR LIFE

  • Pereira de Carvalho had a ritual. Before every match he raised his yellow and red cards. The cards were inscribed Deus é Fiel, which means God is Faithful. He also prayed in the centre of the field. What a joker.
