Snooker's world governing body have confirmed that Stephen Lee will face a disciplinary hearing in September.

The hearing will be into allegations of match-fixing and the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association said Lee will have his case heard on September 9.

Lee has been suspended since October 2012 over allegations that he breached rules in matches at four tournaments, one of these was the 2009 World Championship.

The case will be heard by Sports Resolutions UK and could lead to a lengthy ban for the 38-year-old, who has previously won five ranking events.

It is alleged that Lee provided information 'that is not publicly available' and deliberately influenced 'the outcome or conduct of a game or frame.'

The four tournaments involved cover eight matches, including four at the 2008 Malta Cup. The hearing will also look at two games in the UK Championship in the same year and one match at the China Open in 2009.
