Malaysian football authorities have imposed a lifetime ban on five players and three officials for match-fixing in the domestic league.
The eight, who represented Kuala Lumpur, were each slapped with an almost $7,500 fine, while another seven players from the same club face a disciplinary hearing next week.
After a dire season, the Kuala Lumpur team have been relegated to the third-tier competition next season.
Fears of match-rigging surfaced in May last year, particularly during the second-tier Malaysian Premier League match between Kuala Lumpur and Sime Darby.
Angry fans waved banners with slogans such as "Bookie detected" and "Bookie 5 - Fans 0", at the start of the match.
The final result was a shock because Sime Darby won 5-0.
Allegations of match-fixing have long tainted football in Malaysia, which last February hosted an international meeting on the problem.
In 2012, 18 youth players were suspended and a coach banned for life for fixing matches.
In 1994, 21 players and coaches were sacked, 58 players were suspended and 126 players questioned over corruption.
