The adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee on 21 December 2015 banned FIFA President Sepp Blatter and Vice-President and member of the Executive Committee of FIFA and President of UEFA Michel Platini.

They were banned for eight years from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) on a national and international level.


The ban came into force immediately. Blatter and Platini have also been fined 40000 US dollar and 80000
US dollar respectively.

The Ethics Committee of football's global governing body that suspended the duo was chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert. The decision was made in the wake of payment of 20 lakh Swiss Francs (CHF) which was transferred to Platini by Blatter in February 2011.
