Details (from document)

During the 2018-2019 season, within the National Ice Hockey Championship category – U20, organized by FRGH, several matches were introduced in the specialized application Pointstreak, which in reality were not played.

The Pointstreak Sport Technologies application is an online platform used worldwide and officially by FRHG in order to record all the information related to the development of national championships, such as statistics, matches, results, table, teams, program, etc.

According to the data uploaded in the application (can be accessed through the official website of FRGH), in the national ice hockey championship category – U20, 2018/2019 edition, there were 12 games between three teams entered in the championship – CSA Steaua Bucharest , ASC Corona Brașov and CSHC Márton Aron.

In reality, the ASC Corona Brașov team did not play any match in the championship, all the matches of this team being actually falsely documented.

The fictitiousness of the matches can be proven by the statement of the players, of the staff, who did not participate in these events.

It is also a definite proof that these games do not appear in the program of the host ice rinks, at the date of the fictitious matches took place sports activities.

A number of 6 games were organized on paper in August 2019 after the closing of the 2018/2019 hockey season.

These irregularities in the organization and conduct of the National Youth Ice Hockey Championship – U20 season 2018/2019 fall under the criminal law on forgery and use of forgery.

It is very important to mention that the organization of the championship was financed from public money, therefore in case expenses related to the organization of fictitious matches were settled, this means the violation of the rules regarding the management of public money.

The match between CSM Corona Brașov and Sportul Studentesc București on 29.01.2020 was played only on paper.
