Regina v Majeed; Regina v Westfield [2012] EWCA Crim 1186; [2012] WLR (D) 172

“Where a sportsman corruptly accepted financial inducements to identify, in advance, occasions when during a match he would play in a specific, previously agreed, manner, the conduct of that sportsman, whose contract obliged him to refrain from doing anything that might damage the reputation of the club or board which employed him, was integral to the affairs and business of that club or board, who were therefore victims of such corrupt activities, even if the bribes were not intended to and did not influence the club or board in any way.”
