FIFA takes extreme measures against discrimination

FIFA to step up persecution of discrimination acts in Confederations Cup

Football's governing body is really interested in keeping the beautiful game as one party, where no discrimination acts will be allowed.

If warnings don't do the trick, then losing a game should.

FIFA has given referees the authority to suspend or call off a match where fans enter in disrespectful or discriminating behavior, in an effort to end such demonstrations in all football stadiums in the world.

This measure will be exercised in the upcoming FIFA Confederations Cup, which will have Mexico and Chile playing. Both fan bases have been regularly involved in such practices by yelling a homophobic slur when the opposing goalkeeper takes a goal kick. 

Chile was banned from using the Estadio Nacional de Santiago for one game, while Mexico has been repeatedly fined by this incident, which is usually downplayed by some of their fans, as they believe it to be part of their culture.

The use of the word "puto" by Mexico's fanbase, which translates into "faggot", has been the subject of several campaigns by the Mexican Football Association, which have proved to be unsuccessful.

The referee will ask the authorities to use the speaker system in each stadium to make fans stop such actions. If they continue with their behaviour, the ref could stop the match until fans refrain from shouting any discriminating remarks. The final step of the process will end with the referee suspending the match for good, giving all the points to the team not involved in the insult or conduct.
