Uefa, European soccer's governing body, is to distribute an 11-point plan designed to tackle match-fixing to all 54 of its member associations.
Uefa hopes the plan will ensure that there is a consistent approach to how sanctions are applied across the continent.
Speaking after an Uefa executive committee meeting in Bilbao, Spain yesterday, general secretary Gianni Infantino said: "For Uefa, the fight against match-fixing is a top priority but it is important that all over Europe there is as uniform an approach as possible against it."
Uefa members will be asked to agree to the proposals, with the plan to go before the Uefa Congress in Astana, Kazakhstan next March for final approval.
Infantino continued: "It cannot be that in one country you have one sanction and another one in a different country for the same offence which goes straight into the soul of football. We also want to strengthen the effective partnership between sports bodies and state authorities which is crucial in the fight against match-fixing.
He said that even one match fixed is "one match too many and we have to fight against this in the most efficient way."
This year Uefa has excluded from its club competitions two teams from Turkey (Fenerbahce and Besiktas) and one from Ukraine (Metalist Kharkiv) for their involvement in domestic match-fixing scandals.
Just this week in England, six people, including former Premier League striker DJ Campbell, who now plays for second-tier Championship club Blackburn Rovers, were arrested by the National Crime Agency following a national newspaper probe into spot-fixing.
This followed the arrests of four people, including two players from the sixth-tier Conference South division, in an NCA investigation into claims of match-fixing involving an international betting syndicate.
