Johannesburg - The fate of Zimbabwean players and officials involved in a match-fixing scandal was still undecided on Tuesday, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) said.

Spokesperson Lux September said he was waiting for FIFA and did not want to comment on the issue, which has been dubbed as "Asiagate".

"We have not received any information from FIFA or SAFA [the SA Football Association]," September said on Tuesday.

"We don't want to comment as any action must be sanctioned by FIFA."

On Tuesday, FIFA was still in the process of sanctioning life bans imposed by the Zimbabwean Football Association (ZIFA).

"FIFA will be in contact with ZIFA in order to be informed of the exact status of the disciplinary proceedings, receive the decisions and take the appropriate measures as soon as possible," FIFA said in a statement on Tuesday.

According to FIFA rules on, among others match-fixing, associations had to ask it to extend sanctions taken at national level to have worldwide effect, it said.

Method Mwanjali, Thomas Sweswe and Black Leopards' coach Sunday Chidzambwa were the three involved in Premier Soccer League (PSL) action, but are still conducting business as usual pending a worldwide ban being possibly passed by FIFA.
