Rio De Janeiro, June 26 (IBNS): International football body FIFA on Thursday banned Uruguay striker Luis Suarez from all football related activities for four months for biting an opponent at the World Cup.
"The player Luis Suárez is to be suspended for nine (9) official matches. The first match of this suspension is to be served in the upcoming FIFA World Cup fixture between Colombia and Uruguay on 28 June 2014. The remaining match suspensions shall be served in Uruguay’s next FIFA World Cup match(es), as long as the team qualifies, and/or in the representative team’s subsequent official matches in accordance with art. 38 par. 2a) of the FDC," FIFA said in a statement.
 
"The player Luis Suárez is banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) for a period of four (4) months in accordance with art. 22 of the FDC," it said.
 
FIFA informed that stadium ban is pronounced against Luis Suárez in accordance with article 21 of the FDC as follows: "the player Luis Suárez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium during the period of the ban (point 3). The player Luis Suárez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium in which the representative team of Uruguay is playing while he has to serve the nine-match suspension (point 2)."
 
FIFA also fined the Liverpool striker 100,000 Swiss francs ($112,000).
 
The decision was notified to the player and the Uruguayan FA on Friday.
 
“Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any football pitch, and in particular not at a FIFA World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field. The Disciplinary Committee took into account all the factors of the case and the degree of Mr Suárez’s guilt in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Code. The decision comes into force as soon it is communicated,” said Claudio Sulser, chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.
