Chile handed stadium ban for homophobic chants

FIFA hands Chile two-match stadium ban and $29,000 fine for homophobic chanting by their fans.

On Monday, FIFA handed Chile a stadium ban for the third time during the 2018 World Cup qualifying competition. It is understood that ban is because of homophobic chanting by their own fans.

The South American Champions will have to play two more games away from the Estadio Nacional (National Stadium), in an addition to an existing ban. They were also fined 30,000 Swiss francs ($29,000).

The ban was reported after Chile’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on 15 November.  This is the third time Chile has been issued with a stadium ban in the 2018 World Cup qualifying tournament.

“The proceedings relate to homophobic chants by the team’s fans and follow previous sanctions for similar incidents during the preliminary competition of the 2018 FIFA World Cup,” FIFA said.

In January 2016, Chile was fined 70,000 Swiss francs (£54,980) for homophobic chanting by their fans at four matches. They were fined again in May for another incident during a home defeat against Argentina.

Because of this ban, Chile are forced to find another venue for the match against Venezuela in March.  Chile will also face Paraguay and Ecuador away from their home stadium.

In addition to Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela have also faced the ban for the same reason.
