Mexico punished without an audience at Azteca at the start of the Qatar 2022 tie

FIFA informed the Mexican Soccer Federation that the World Cup qualifying match on September 2 between Mexico against Jamaica will have to be played without an audience in the stands of the Azteca Stadium, while the game against Canada on October 7 continues in “We will see”, because the highest body of world football has not yet made a decision on the matter.

This is a sanction that the FMF had already expected, sources confided to ESPN, who confirmed the punishment of the veto at the start of the CONCACAF Octagonal Final towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee made this determination due to the homophobic shouts that arose at the CONCACAF Pre-Olympic qualification last March in Guadalajara, while a final decision is awaited on whether a second elimination match will be played behind closed doors, the fourth of the Octagonal and second to El Tri at home, which will take place on October 7 against Canada.

Through its president Yon de Luisa, the FMF has sought to convince the different FIFA bodies with which it has entered into conversations of all the efforts that Mexican football has made for more than two years, both at the Federation and at the level of Liga MX, to eradicate the homophobic cry to the rival goalkeeper in goal kicks.
