The prosecutor's office has sent a case involving eight ex-Narva Trans footballers to court, accusing the men of fixing matches, including Estonian top-division and Europa League games.

The eight ex-footballers and three other men allegedly earned a total of 108,000 euros for fixing matches, a spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office told uudised.err.ee today.

The Football Association banned the men from all football-related activities for one year in March, with the game's world governing body, FIFA, extending that ban worldwide in May.

According to the charge, the syndicate influenced the outcome of a dozen Estonian top-league games, three Europa games, one Estonian Cup game and one game in Lithuania between June 2011 and November of last year.

Five of the eight played for Narva Trans last season, including Maksim Gruznov, who holds the league's all-time top scorer title with over 300 goals.
