FIFA Appeal Committee rejects the partial appeal lodged by Jeffrey Webb

The FIFA Appeal Committee has rejected the partial appeal lodged by Jeffrey Webb, and confirmed the decision taken by the adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee. Mr Webb had not contested the lifelong ban imposed on him by the adjudicatory chamber, but appealed the fine in the amount of CHF 1,000,000.

After analysing and taking into consideration all circumstances of the case, the Appeal Committee determined that the fine imposed on Mr Webb in the amount of CHF 1,000,000, as ruled by the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, was adequate in this case.

Consequently, Mr Webb’s fine and lifelong ban are maintained, in accordance with art. 6 par. 1 h) of the FIFA Code of Ethics and art. 22 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code. The ban imposed on Mr Webb came into force on 9 September 2016.
