FIFA’s Independent Ethics Committee has banned Venold Coombs, president of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation, from all soccer activities two years.

Coombs breached rules on bribery and corruption, conflicts and interest, and loyalty, the committee said on Tuesday, following an investigation into the resale of tickets for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Coombs, whose ban is effective immediately, was also fined $40,000.
