What you should know
These decisions can impact a player’s career
With this in mind, governing bodies like FIFA should have to follow a proper judicial process to ensure that all repercussions of punishments have been fairly considered, such as loss of earnings.
All sanctions must be fair and proportionate to the perceived offence
Once decisions of this kind have been made, players must also have access to a proper appeals process where appropriate.
All disciplinary rules and sanctions should be negotiated either with FIFPRO or domestic player associations
This is the only way to ensure that players' lives are not unfairly disrupted, and that any punishments are justified and considered within the necessary context.
