In recent days, Latvian football has again intervened in a number of unpleasant cases. On Saturday, in one of the games of the Latvian First League, there were suspicions of unfair play of "Dinamo Riga" and influence on the result of the match, while in the second league in one of the matches in the stands of Salaspils stadium, the fan sang the anthem of the aggressor country Russia. Meanwhile, on Monday, the State Revenue Service (SRS) announced that an official of a Latvian football club had been charged with tax evasion.
After the suspicious game of Dinamo Riga and the incident in Salaspils, the LFF stated in a statement that there is "zero tolerance for any kind of integrity violations, so any violations found will be assessed with the strictest severity in order to protect football from persons who undermine the principles of the football game".
