Mexico Fined by FIFA For Discriminatory and Insulting Chants at World Cup


FIFA has fined the Mexican Football Federation $10,000 dollars for the actions of the El Tri’s fans during its stunning win over Germany. The fine was for “discriminatory and insulting chants” aimed at the German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. In other words, some fans yield out the popular and now infamous chant, ehhhh puto.

A new anti-discrimination procedure at the World Cup instructs referees to stop the game for a public announcement if any discriminatory behavior — such as anti-LGBT chants — are heard. The official can suspend the game if the chanting persists.

Despite the rule, the referee in Sunday’s match did not take any action but FIFA will be opening an investigation.

This is not the first time the Mexican soccer federation has been fined for the chant. The federation and several players have urged fans to stop the chant to avoid further punishment and have started a social media campaign against the chant.
