FIFA orders Sierra Leone to play Lesotho without spectators and a fine of CHF 50,000

FIFA can today confirm the disciplinary sanctions imposed for incidents that took place during the latest round of the preliminary competition of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.

Notably, as a result of a number of incidents (including the invasion of the field of play, the throwing of objects and a lack of order or discipline observed in and around the stadium) that occurred in connection with the match between Sierra Leone and Liberia on 8 September 2019, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has ordered the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) to play one match without spectators. This sanction is to be served when the representative team of Sierra Leone play their next official match. Moreover, the SLFA has been sanctioned with a fine of CHF 50,000.

Several other disciplinary sanctions have been imposed. A full list is available in the disciplinary overview document for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 preliminary competition,
