FIFA threatens sanctions for Mexico after anti-gay chant reemerges

3/26/21 | ESPN

FIFA has officially opened an investigation after anti-gay chants were audible during the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying match between Mexico and the Dominican Republic on March 18. Potential sanctions range from a fine charged to the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) to forfeiture of the three points obtained from the 4-1 El Tri win. “FIFA can confirm the opening of a disciplinary procedure against the FMF due to the discriminatory incidents during the match between Mexico and the Dominican Republic,” a statement from FIFA to ESPN Mexico read. Should Mexico forfeit the points, statutes dictate the previous result would be replaced with a 3-0 loss.
