Two sports marketing companies which are embroiled in the Fifa bribery scandal can be linked to a letterbox company in the Netherlands, the AD reports on Monday.
The Dutch company Torneos & Traffic Sports Marketing BV is allied to two sports marketing companies in South America which are implicated in the scandal, the AD says. On paper, the company, which is worth millions of euros, has been headed by a 32-year-old amateur comedian named Maarten van Genuchten since October 2014.
According to the FBI, Fifa officials were bribed to award valuable contracts for television rights via these South American firms. Torneos & Traffic Sports Marketing has assets of €2m which were deposited in 2013. The company is owned by a holding company based in Cyprus.
