On 19 September 2008, Shakhter and Vostok were disqualified from the Kazakhstan Premier League for playing a fixed match, club coaches and management involved were banned from football for 60 months.

However, Celtic won the return leg by 3-0 and Shakhter dropped into the Europa League - the first time a Kazakh club has progressed to the group stage of a European competition. Shakhter were eliminated from the Europa League by finishing fourth in a group containing PAOK, Maccabi Haifa and AZ.

Shakhter sacrifice a sheep the day before matches, as a tradition.

Laws regarding animal slaughter have made the custom impossible when playing away in some countries.
