  • More than 700 new cases and 300 requests received by the Disciplinary Committee

  • In total, 150 investigations opened by the Ethics Committee

  • The report presents an extensive overview of the activities undertaken

FIFA published the fourth annual report today on the activities of its independent judicial bodies – the Disciplinary, Ethics and Appeal Committees – in line with its continued efforts to promote transparency and full disclosure in relation to their activities. The report offers comprehensive statistics on the more than 700 cases received by the Disciplinary Committee during the sporting period running from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023. These cases encompass various infractions, such as violations of football competition regulations, the protection of minors, third party ownership, match fixing, doping and numerous instances related to the enforcement of decisions issued by the FIFA Football Tribunal or the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Moreover, the 2022/2023 edition of the report presents an extensive overview of the activities undertaken by both chambers of the independent Ethics Committee, which is responsible for addressing potential illegal, immoral or unethical behaviours by individuals involved in football and imposing appropriate sanctions upon substantiated suspicions or accusations. The report provides key statistics concerning the types of cases handled by the Ethics Committee, the source of the claims and the decisions rendered. The publication of the fourth edition of the report is fully aligned with FIFA’s objectives of increasing transparency and maintaining the distinguished standards that have been fostered and upheld in recent years by FIFA’s judicial bodies. These objectives underpin the several hundred cases that were investigated and decided upon by the Disciplinary Committee, the Ethics Committee and the Appeal Committee during the above mentioned sporting period.
