Fifa vote supports racism sanctions
- From the section Football
Fifa has voted in support of racism sanctions that will see players banned for a minimum of five matches with teams facing relegation or points deductions if their fans continually offend.
The 208 associations resoundingly supported sanctions during a vote at Fifa's annual congress in Mauritius.
BBC Sport's Richard Conway spoke to Jeffrey Webb, Fifa's anti-racism taskforce chairman, and Uefa president Michel Platini about the vote.
