The president of the Brazilian Football Confederation will propose losing points in issues of racism from 2023

The president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, Edenaldo Rodriguez, will propose from 2023 that sporting sanctions be applied to teams whose fans exhibit racist behaviour. Edinaldo will pass the idea on to the Technical Council of the Brazilian Championship – a model set up by the clubs participating in the competition – next year.

It was the Technical Council, for example, that objected to the sale of the Field Administration and first approved (in 2021) and then (in 2022) dropped the cap on technician exchange.

The Brazilian Football Confederation hosts an event on racism and football violence

Edinaldo Rodriguez will announce this intention on Wednesday, during the first seminar against racism and violence in football, organized by the Brazilian Football Confederation. Singer Gilberto Gil was confirmed, as the guest of honor, by the President of CONMEBOL, Alejandro Dominguez, and the President of the Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco, at the opening of the event.

The event marks the beginning of a series of initiatives that will further discuss the fight against racism and violence in football. It is a historic gesture to put an end to racism and ignorance in football. In addition to the event, we will be doing a series of actions in stadiums this week to raise awareness among fans. Enough discrimination, said Edenaldo Rodriguez.

During the symposium, the 2021 edition of the Football Discrimination Report, produced annually by the Football Discrimination Observatory, will be presented. According to Marcelo Carvalho, founder of the observatory, the number of cases exploded last year compared to 2020.

– There were 31 cases in 2020 and 64 cases in 2021. This is the number of cases of racism in Brazilian football or with Brazilian athletes in South American competitions – said Carvalho.

This year, the Canadian Border Commission began sponsoring the work of the observatory.

– The work of the observatory is very relevant due to the quality of the research and helps to add more depth to the discussion. The CBF partnership gives the group financial peace of mind and helps it develop long-term projects – announced the president of CBF.

Representatives of FIFA, such as Pavel Klimenko, who will speak on “international best practices in the fight against discrimination” will also attend the event at the headquarters of the Brazilian Football Confederation. And Andre Reis, Head of Planning and Security Operations at FIFA.
