FIFA bans Caribbean soccer official Gordon Derrick

World soccer body FIFA said on Tuesday that the president of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU), Gordon Derrick, had been banned for six years from all soccer-related activities for violating several articles of FIFA’s ethical code.

The independent Ethics Committee found him guilty of offering and accepting gifts or other benefits, FIFA said in a statement.

Derrick, who is also General Secretary of the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association (ABFA), was also ordered to pay a fine totalling 30,000 Swiss francs (£23,097), FIFA said.

The Caribbean Football Union president revealed that no details were provided of the allegations against him.

FIFA added that the Antiguan official also breached rules requiring him to cooperate with the investigation.

The case was announced after Derrick was barred from standing in a 2016 presidential election to lead the North American soccer body, CONCACAF.
