The trial of two non-league footballers and two Singapore nationals charged with conspiracy to defraud bookmakers has been set for 19 May 2014.
The quartet appeared at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday in connection with a National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation into match-fixing.
Michael Boateng and Hakeem Adelakun were playing for Brighton-based Conference South club Whitehawk when the allegations first surfaced in November.
The pair, who are on bail, arrived this morning for a hearing in Court Five that only lasted for around five minutes.
Boateng and Adelakun appeared along with Singapore nationals Chann Sankaran and Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan, who are being held in custody.
No bail application has yet been lodged by Sankaran and Ganeshan's lawyer, who must seek a UK address for the pair before that can happen.
All four men have been charged with conspiracy to defraud bookmakers in Manchester between 1 and 26 November this year.
The most senior judge in Birmingham, His Honour Judge W Davis QC, the Recorder of Birmingham, presided over the hearing and set a date of 7 March 2014 for a plea and case management hearing to be held.
The trial itself is expected to last for between three and four weeks.
The case is separate from a second investigation being conducted by the NCA which relates to alleged spot-fixing involving five footballers and a businessman.
