  • Sepp Blatter is still no longer allowed to work in football.

  • The Fifa ethics committee has issued further bans.

  • Blatter also has to pay a fine of one million francs.

The ethics committee of the world football association has imposed further penalties on the former FIFA President Joseph Blatter and the former General Secretary Jerôme Valcke. The two officials were banned from national and international football activities for six years and eight months and fined one million Swiss francs each. Blatter and Valcke are charged with several offenses, such as conflicts of interest or the offer or acceptance of gifts or other benefits. FIFA announced this on Wednesday.

Since the former FIFA bosses are currently still serving a sentence, the sanctions will only come into force after they have expired. In the case of Blatter, from October 8, 2021, at Valcke, the first ban does not expire until October 8, 2025.

Valcke is accused of abuse of office

The 85-year-old Blatter was FIFA President until autumn 2015, before he was suspended by the association’s ethics committee together with then-UEFA President Michel Platini and later suspended for eight years. The sanction was then reduced to six years. In essence, it was about a payment of two million francs from FIFA to Platini in 2011.

Valcke was initially banned for twelve years in 2015 for violating the ethics code of the world association on several points, before the sentence was reduced by two years. At the time, he was charged with having been involved in reselling World Cup tickets and not cooperating with the FIFA investigation. He is now also accused of abuse of office.
