An FA statement read: “The FA has proposed that from next season, diagnosis participants at Step 4 and above of the English league system will be banned from betting, either directly or indirectly, on any football match or competition anywhere in the world.
“The changes to FA rules from the start of the 2014/15 season would also see a worldwide prohibition on betting on any other football-related matter, for example, the transfer of players, employment of managers or team selection.
“The passing of inside information to somebody that uses the information for betting remains prohibited.”
