Mexican Soccer Federation Clarifies That It Does Not Seek To Affect The Women’s Team Due To A FIFA Sanction

The Mexican Soccer Federation indicated that it is waiting for the determination, however, it rejects that it seeks to affect the women’s team

The Mexican Soccer Federation clarified that it will not seek to affect the Mexican Women’s National Team to pay part of the sanction of two matches that FIFA imposed due to the discriminatory cry that has appeared in some meetings of the men’s senior team, but is waiting for the determination made by the highest football organization.

“The Mexican Football Federation is awaiting the determination by FIFA regarding the specific definition of matches where the sanction received will be applied.”

The FMF has no influence whatsoever in choosing the parties where the sanction should be applied and categorically rejects that it is seeking to affect the National Women’s Team ”, he expresses in the letter.

It also specified that, in the sanction issued by FIFA, It is mentioned that the punishment must be served in the first two official matches of the national team, regardless of whether it is a women’s or men’s team., so in that case the Tri Femenil can absorb a veto match.

“The sanction mentions the next two official matches for the National Team. The Mexican Football Federation is awaiting the determination by FIFA regarding the specific definition of matches where the sanction received will be applied ”, he concludes.

The Directorate of National Teams contemplates that the Mexican women’s team have a preparation meeting in our country, so that in this way the veto sanction match would be paid.

FIFA sanctioned the FMF after the chants that were presented during the matches against the Dominican Republic and the United States, corresponding to the pre-Olympic tournament played in Guadalajara.

Originally It was contemplated that the team led by Gerardo Martino would pay the sanction during the duels against Jamaica and Canada. He also received a financial penalty of 60,000 Swiss francs.
