World Cup 2018: FIFA Fines Mexico £7,316 For 'Homophobic Chants' By Fans

The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) has been fined 10,000 Swiss francs (£7,615) for Homophobic Chants by Mexican fans.

The Chants came during Mexico's 1-0 win over Germany last week.

FIFA said it had already warned Mexico's federation, FMF, it could face "additional sanctions" if there are "repeated infringements" - a similar warning was made in November.

"Fifa has a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination," a spokesperson said.

"The decision was passed after a thorough assessment of the relevant match reports, the FMF's precedents and the evidence provided, which included videos of the incidents as well as examples of certain sustainable actions taken by the FMF to raise awareness among its supporters," FIFA said in a statement released on Wednesday.

"Moreover, the disciplinary committee gave a warning to the FMF, who may face additional sanctions in case of repeated infringements of this type."

The FMF had repeatedly asked Mexican fans to stop using the chants, which features the Spanish word used for a male prostitute.

It is usually said when the opposition Goalkeeper is taking a goal kick.

In 2017, FMF Successfully appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) against two larger FIFA Fines for the same offence.

Also, A FIFA disciplinary panel has fined the Serbian Football Association, 10,000 Swiss francs for the  "display of an offensive and political banner by Serbian fans" during their match against Costa Rica.
