(AFP) – Full text of FIFA statement announcing
a nine match ban for Uruguay’s Luis Suarez for
biting an opponent:
“The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has reached
a decision in the case related to Luis Suarez of
Uruguay following an incident that occurred
during the FIFA World Cup match between
Italy and Uruguay played on 24 June 2014.
“The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided
“· The player Luis Suárez is regarded as having
breached art. 48 par. 1 lit. d of the FIFA
Disciplinary Code (FDC) (assault), and art. 57 of
the FDC (an act of unsporting behaviour
towards another player).
“· The player Luis Suárez is to be suspended for
nine (9) official matches. The first match of
this suspension is to be served in the
upcoming FIFA World Cup fixture between
Colombia and Uruguay on 28 June 2014. The
remaining match suspensions shall be served
in Uruguay’s next FIFA World Cup match(es), as
long as the team qualifies, and/or in the
representative team’s subsequent official
matches in accordance with art. 38 par. 2a) of
the FDC.
“· The player Luis Suárez is banned from taking
part in any kind of football-related activity
(administrative, sports or any other) for a
period of four (4) months in accordance with
art. 22 of the FDC.
“· A stadium ban is pronounced against the
player Luis Suárez in accordance with art. 21
of the FDC as follows: the player Luis Suárez is
prohibited from entering the confines of any
stadium during the period of the ban (point 3).
The player Luis Suárez is prohibited from
entering the confines of any stadium in which
the representative team of Uruguay is playing
while he has to serve the nine-match
suspension (point 2).
“· The player Luis Suárez is ordered to pay a
fine in the amount of 100,000 Swiss francs.
“The decision was notified to the player and
the Uruguayan FA today.
“‘Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any
football pitch, and in particular not at a FIFA
World Cup when the eyes of millions of people
are on the stars on the field. The Disciplinary
Committee took into account all the factors of
the case and the degree of Mr Suárez’s guilt in
accordance with the relevant provisions of the
Code. The decision comes into force as soon it
is communicated,’ said Claudio Sulser,
chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.”
