The Disciplinary Committee of world football governing body FIFA has warned and imposed fines of different sums on the Football Associations of four countries at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
In a circular it put out yesterday in Moscow, FIFA imposed a fine of 10,000 Swiss Francs on and handed a warning to the Football Union of Russia.
The disciplinary measures were for the display of a discriminatory banner during the match between Uruguay and Russia.
FIFA also warned and imposed a fine of 20,000 Swiss Francs on the Football Association of Serbia for the display of a political and offensive banner.
The offence was committed during the match between Serbia and Brazil.
The Mexican Football Federation was also fined 15,000 Swiss Francs and warned for crowd disturbance by its team’s supporters.
The supporters had thrown objects during the match between Mexico and Sweden.
A hefty fine of 65,000 Swiss Francs, as well as a warning, was handed to the Moroccan Football Association for some incidents recorded during the match between Spain and Morocco.
“Six members of the Morocco technical staff forced their way into the pitch after the final whistle; 13 officials were present in the technical area, even when the maximum allowed is 11.
“There was also crowd disturbance by Moroccan fans who threw objects during the match,” the committee said.
