Turkish season to begin late

The Turkish FA have confirmed the new Super Lig season will start over a month later than planned as a result of the match-fixing scandal that continues to grip the nation.

The new campaign will now get under way on 9 September - pushed back from 7 August  - allowing further time for authorities to investigate the corruption allegations.

Investigations included officials and players from a number of teams and followed police raids across several cities.

Fenerbahce were crowned league champions last term, pipping Trabzonspor to the Super Lig title with a dramatic 4-3 win at Sivasspor on the final day.
