The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) fined the Mexican Soccer Federation (FMF) due to the discriminatory and homophobic chants by spectators during two Mexican national selection’s games.

The penalty, which exceeds $352,400, was issued because of two incidents reported by FIFA’s Antidiscrimination Monitoring System.

Disciplinary proceedings had already been issued to Mexico for the same reason in January 2016. On that occasion, the penalty totaled $20,000.

Other countries facing fines include Chile, Paraguay, Peru, El Salvador, Honduras and Croatia. In the case of Chile, its national team was suspended from playing two games. Meanwhile, the Croatian national team will play two closed-door games.
