FIFA’s Ethics Committee has opened formal adjudicatory proceedings against Wolfgang Niersbach; former president of the German Football Association (DFB), vice-president of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Local Organising Committee (LOC) and current member of the FIFA Council and the UEFA executive committee.

It comes after a final report was submitted by the investigatory chamber after investigations concerning Mr Niersbach conducted by Dr Cornel Borbély, chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, were opened in March.

In its final report, the investigatory chamber recommends a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activity and a fine of CHF 30,000 for violations of  4 acts of the FIFA Code of Ethics.

Mr Niersbach will be invited to submit his position including any evidence with regard to the final report of the investigatory chamber.
