FIFA promises to forcefully attack racism

BANGKOK-. The FIFA will urge its 211 national federations to criminalize abuses racists in football as a disciplinary offense.

World football's governing body also suggests “a global standard for players to report racist incidents” to referees, with their wrists crossed over their heads.

The five-point commitment to tackle racism will be presented on Friday to the federations that make up FIFA during their annual meeting in Bangkok.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino promised months ago to launch a global proposal and has consulted Brazilian star Vinicius Junior, who is black and has been repeatedly insulted by fans in Spain, where he plays for Real Madrid.

FIFA also wants to create a committee of footballers to “supervise and advise the implementation of these measures throughout the world.”
