Former FIFA official Jerome Valcke's 10-year ban, fine upheld by appeals court

Former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke
The 10-year ban and a fine given to former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke was upheld on appeal.

Former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke's 10-year ban from football for breaching the organisation's code of ethics was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Friday.

The arbiters ruled that the ban and the fine of 100,000 Swiss francs ($100,200) were fitting sanctions after he was implicated in the irregular sales of World Cup tickets and broadcast rights, plus expense abuses including his personal use of private jets.

"The offenses found to have been committed by Jerome Valcke were cumulatively of a serious degree of gravity," CAS said in a statement, calling the sanctions "wholly proportionate."

Valcke, whose appeal was heard in October, was the secretary general for eight years during Sepp Blatter's presidency.

The former television presenter from France was first a FIFA marketing executive who was fired by the organisation in 2006 before becoming Blatter's top aide the next year.

He was then fired again in 2016 and originally banned from all football-related activity for 12 years by the FIFA ethics committee for his role in the improprieties, with an additional charge of destroying evidence, but FIFA's appeal panel cut the ban by two years because it judged charges relating to the broadcasting deal were not proven.

Valcke has denied all wrongdoing.
