By Ameenu Shardow

FIFA?s new Anti-Racism task force with Ghanaian; Kevin-Prince Boateng as a member are proposing tougher sanctions for clubs whose players, officials or fans are guilty of racism.

The new body met for the first time on Monday and will be presenting their report for adoption by member associations at the annual FIFA general congress at the end of May in Mauritius.

The task force led by FIFA?s vice-president from the Cayman Islands; Jeffrey Webb are proposing dire punishments up to even elimination from competitions for guilty persons caught in the act of racism.

The punishment ranges from hefty fines through to playing game behind closed-doors, point deductions and ultimately expulsion.

These sanctions, when adopted will however only apply to FIFA-mandated competitions.

Discussions meanwhile are already underway to convince almost all confederations to adopt the new proposals into their competitions in a grand plan in getting the newly proposed sanctions globally accepted.
