FIFA has given three officials who pleaded guilty to corruption in a US court , life bans from all football – related activities for corruption , the sport’ s governing body announced on Wednesday .
The adjudicatory chamber of the ethics committee banned former chairman of the North American Soccer League ( NASL ) Aaron Davidson, former CONCACAF official Costas Takkas and Colombian ex -FIFA match agent Miguel Trujillo for bribery and corruption .
Takkas was an advisor to former CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb, who was banned from football by the FIFA ethics committee in 2015 .
The trio will all also have to pay fines of one million Swiss Francs ( $ 1 . 03 million ) .
American Davidson, a 47 – year – old former sports marketing executive , pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy at a Brooklyn court in 2016 .
Forty- two people were indicted in the US after the corruption scandal and many pleaded guilty , although others , such as former FIFA vice – president Jack Warner , managed to avoid extradition to the States .
Last month , former Conmebol president Juan Angel Napout was sentenced to nine years in prison , shortly after former Brazilian FA boss Jose Maria Marin was handed a four – year sentence .
