FIFA impose lifetime ban on two British players from Australia

FIFA has imposed a worldwide extension of sanctions imposed by the Football Federation of Australia (FFA) on two British players (from England) relating to match manipulation. The two players, Reiss Michael Noel and Joe Nigel Woolley, had already been sanctioned with an initial ban by the FFA on 23 September 2013 following the opening of criminal investigations by Victoria Police, and those sanctions were extended by FIFA to have worldwide effect on 30 October 2013.

Both players have since been convicted of criminal offences on 6 December 2013. Following these convictions, the FFA conducted disciplinary proceedings and subsequently decided to sanction each player with a lifetime ban from taking part in any football-related activity.

The chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has duly notified the respective member associations and confederations on 14 March 2014.
