FIFA confirms suspension of Guatemala

Thursday, May 11, 2017


FIFA on Thursday confirmed the suspension of both the Guatemala and Kuwait football federations at its annual Congress in Bahrain.

Delegates voted overwhelmingly to retain the suspensions against both federations, which were imposed in Kuwait's case in 2015 and Guatemala in 2016.

Guatemala was suspended from international competition after it rejected a FIFA proposal to extend a "normalisation committee" imposed because of its involvement in the corruption scandal that has rocked world football's governing body.
