FIFA suspends Guatemalan soccer federation

Monday, October 31, 2016

FIFA suspended the Guatemalan soccer federation on Friday, in a fight over the powers given to an oversight committee appointed by the international soccer governing body to look into allegations of corruption.

The local federation Fedefut, which is being administered by the FIFA-appointed oversight body, said its suspension was due to members' refusal to allow an election for a new executive committee.
