FIFA has doled out fines to seven different countries because of the homophobic slurs that have recently been chanted by their fans.
Soccer’s international governing body said that, due to match reports discovered by their Anti-Discrimination Monitoring System, they would now be issuing fines against Peru, Mexico, Chile, Paraguay, Honduras, Croatia and El Salvador.
FIFA said that they’re working on additional solutions to tackling discrimination, including training and the FIFA Good Practice Guide on Diversity and Anti-Discrimination.
Despite their efforts, out LA Galaxy player Robbie Rogers recently said that the soccer association is run by “these old racist, sexist, homophobic dudes” who are just as corrupt and anti-LGBT as Russia’s leaders.
FIFA is currently planning on holding the 2018 World Cup in Russia, despite protests from LGBT advocates.
