Former FIFA president loses appeal against six-year ban

Former FIFA President Sepp Blatter has lost his appeal against a six-year ban for ethics violations.

He led the global soccer body for 17 years until he resigned in June.The 80 year old was then banned from all football-related activities the following December by FIFA’s Ethics Committee along with the then UEFA President Michel Platini.

The men were banned over a payment of $1.98 million that FIFA made to Platini in 2011 with Blatter’s approval for work done a decade earlier.

Matthieu Reeb, CAS Secretary General says, “The Court of Arbitration for Sport has rendered today its decision in the arbitration between Joseph (Sepp) Blatter and FIFA. The appeal of Mr. Blatter has been dismissed, accordingly the decision rendered by the FIFA appeals committee in February this year remains in force and Mr. Blatter remains banned from taking part in any football related activity at national or international level for six years as of October 8, 2015 and must still pay a fine of 50,000 Swiss francs.
