Parties interrupted by racism will be declared as lost

FIFA wants to punish more discriminatory offenses in the stadiums, so that the parties that are interrupted for this reason will be declared lost, according to the new disciplinary regulation, announced this Thursday and that will come into force on Monday.

"Except in exceptional circumstances, if a party is definitively interrupted by the referee due to racist and / or discriminatory behavior, it will be declared lost through administrative action," the text states. The sanction will be received by the team whose supporters are responsible for the incidents and could also be applied in a World Cup match.

After a first announcement through the public address system and after a first suspension of the match sending the players to the dressing room, the referee will have the possibility of interrupting it definitively if the incidents continue.

The new regulation details the insults and behavior considered discriminatory: "Those that indicate skin color, ethnic, geographical and social origin, sex, a disability, sexual orientation, language, religion, political opinions, wealth, birth or any other status ».

This disciplinary code only concerns FIFA matches, such as the 2022 World Cup qualifiers. UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying matches, tainted by the racist behavior of Montenegro fans against England in March, depend on UEFA.

FIFA has also announced the launch of a new website, '', which will publish the main decisions of its disciplinary bodies and the different appointments.
