Furthermore, the committee has imposed the following penalties: a fine of CHF 150,000 for FEGUIFUT and a six-month ban on the player from participating in any representative team for any association.

The parties involved have been notified of these findings today and, according to the FIFA Disciplinary Code, have ten days to request a detailed explanation.

These decisions are subject to appeal before the FIFA Appeal Committee.
