Testimony: Fox Sports involved in soccer bribes

Football global media paid bribes FIFA trial hears

The suit, filed by an Uruguayan sports media company, claimed Fox and its executives, along with Burzaco and sports marketing executives, conspired to pay bribes to South American soccer officials in exchange for rights to tournaments. Burzaco, who pleaded guilty and is now cooperating with the USA government, is the former CEO the Argentinian sports marketing firm Torneos y Competencias.

The testimony in the criminal case comes as Fox Sports is being sued, separately, for alleged bribery in Miami federal court.

The allegation was one of a number of bombshells during Burzaco's almost seven hours of testimony on Tuesday in the trial of three South American soccer officials accused of bribery and money laundering. Prosecutors showed that contract to the court and said it was signed by former Fox Sports executive James Ganley, according to the Associated Press . "The entity run by Burzaco was a subsidiary of Fox Pan American Sports, which in 2008, at the time of the contract in question, was majority owned by a private equity firm and under their operational and management control".

Moore is accused of having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl four decades ago when he was in his 30s. Nature's Bounty said it hasn't advertised on the show since the summer but declined to give a reason.

Burzaco said he bribed all three defendants, alleging that Marin received payments of 300,000, going up to 450,000 a year.

When Leoz failed to vote for Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup at Federation Internationale de Football Association headquarters in December 2010, Teixeira and Grondona rounded on him, Burzaco testified. They asked: 'What are you doing? "Are you the one not voting?'" he said, adding that Qatar was voted host of the 2022 World Cup after the encounter.

As his testimony commenced on Tuesday morning, Burzaco was asked to point out the three defendants in the courtroom while testifying that he bribed all of them.

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPD) Upgraded to Hold by Zacks Investment Research
The stock is now moving below its 20-Day Simple Moving Average of -2.82% with a 50-Day Simple Moving Average of -5.38 percent. CFO4Life Group LLC lifted its position in shares of Enterprise Products Partners L.P.by 0.3% during the second quarter.

The three former officials, some of whom went on to replace Grondona, Teixeria and Leoz at the head of Conmebol, deny their role in the 24-year scheme involving at least $150m in bribes.

Alejandro Burzaco Tuesday fingered Fox Sports, Media Pro, TV Global, Traffic, Full Play, and Televisa as he took the stand against ex-FIFA honchos Manuel Burga, Jose Maria Marin and Juan Angel Napout-saying he had personal knowledge of the grafts.

Last year, a soccer network based in Florida that repeatedly lost out on the television rights to tournaments that Fox Sports aired made similar bribery allegations against Fox in a pending federal lawsuit.

The land purchase and the new website are actually part of the kickoff to the company's annual holiday season marketing stunt. Last year, the company raised more than $100,000 to dig a massive "holiday hole" on the busiest shopping day of the year.

Burzaco told jurors that he helped arrange bribes paid to all three defendants, though his testimony went far beyond that, describing corruption throughout worldwide soccer. After being charged in 2015, Burzaco testified that he briefly went into hiding before deciding to turn himself in and cooperate.
