FIFA Announces New Rule, Racists Will Now Get Automatic 10-Game Ban


FIFA has announced a new rule which states that players will be invited to make victim statements at disciplinary hearings, MySportDab reports.

Stricter handling of discrimination allegations is a key theme of the redrafted FIFA disciplinary code which takes effect next week.

‘Topics like racism and discrimination have been updated, putting FIFA at the forefront of the fight against this appalling attack on the fundamental human rights of individuals,’ soccer’s world body said on Thursday in a statement.
