The FIFA Appeals Committee upheld the disciplinary committee's decision on this disrupted match, reducing only the fines to national federations. New meeting date to be determined

The FIFA Appeals Committee has upheld the decision to replay the 2022 World Cup qualifier between Argentina and Brazil, which was disrupted shortly after kickoff last September. This was reported on the FIFA website.

The committee also ruled that the fine of 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,000) imposed on both associations in connection with the cancellation of the match would remain in force. In addition, it was decided to reduce the fine of the Brazilian Football Confederation to $250,000 (from $540,000) for violations related to order and security, and the Argentine Football Association to $100,000 (from $216,000) for non-compliance with obligations regarding order and security, preparation and participation in the match.

The date of the replay will be determined later.

The Brazil-Argentina match, which took place in Brazil's Sao Paulo on September 5, was interrupted in the first minutes due to employees of the National Sanitary Inspection Agency (Anvisa) and the police who ran onto the field and tried to detain four Argentine players who violated the anti-covid protocol. FIFA Disciplinary Committee in February decided on a replay.

The teams have qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
