ESIC don’t find compelling evidence of Joel's involvement in match-fixing

The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has cleared Swedish esports athlete Joel "joel" Holmlund of all charges. Reportedly, it was unable to find compelling evidence of engagement in match-fixing activities.

Joel initially was temporarily suspended by the Commission at the end of September. ESIC then charged the player for betting against his team, as well as a number of other violations of the anti-corruption code.

The esports athlete himself assisted in the investigation and apologized for his actions. Coupled with the lack of evidence, the Swede was allowed to compete at ESIC's member events from January 6, 2024.

In total, Holmlund was banned for seven months. This means that the Commission is counting from June 6, 2023, that is, two weeks after the departure from GODSENT.
