FIFA bans Caribbean football president for 2 years

World football governing body FIFA’s independent ethics committee has banned Venold Coombs, president of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation, from all football activities two years.
Coombs breached rules on bribery and corruption, conflicts and interest, and loyalty, the committee said on Tuesday, following an investigation into the resale of tickets for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Coombs, whose ban is effective immediately, was also fined 40,000 dollars. (Reuters/NAN)
