More Fines for Mexico for Homophobic Chants

FIFA has released the latest list of sanctions for incidents in recent 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches, and, as has become customary, Mexico is once again present due to homophobic chanting.

The latest round of disciplinary action was announced on Thursday, with Mexico receiving 10,000 Swiss Francs in fines plus a warning for “improper conduct among spectators (homophobic chant)” for each of their June qualifiers:  June 8th against Honduras and June 11th against the United States.

Although Mexico has now amassed a total of 140,000 Swiss Francs in fines and received eight warnings, FIFA has continued to elect not to take further action against the Mexican Football Federation (FMF). Other federations that have received fines and warnings for homophobic chants by spectators, such as Chile and Honduras, have also been given stadium bans.
