Roseau (Dominica), Football’s world governing body FIFA is threatening to penalize the Dominica Football Association (DFA) if it proceeds with plans to resolve a dispute in the local court.dominicateam

FIFA’s Ethics Committee member Primo Corvaro issued the warning after former DFA president Dexter Francis brought the Dominican football body to court over wages and the legality of Glen Etienne as DFA chief, reports CMC.

Francis raised his legal challenge three days before the delegate’s election scheduled for June 27 forcing the event to be pushed back to August 1.

“In the future, after the election, should there be any football stakeholder going to any ordinary court, he must be sanctioned and should there be any decision from any judicial authorities imposing something on the DFA, the case will be taken seriously by FIFA and CONCACAF, meaning that sanctions will come,” warned Corvaro as he met the press on Tuesday.

“You can’t leave the judicial system to take action, if that is done you can well imagine what will happen in that situation”.

Corvaro criticized the action by Francis to take the DFA to court, saying such a move will not be tolerated by FIFA.

He said FIFA plans to send officials to monitor the upcoming elections.

“What has been done by Dexter Francis and others was not tolerated and will not be tolerated. We listened to the executive of the FA and we made them an exception, we are taking big risks. We have not accepted what has happened… let it be known that it will not be accepted in the future,” said the FIFA official.

“I am warning that if there is another issue, don’t be surprised of the outcome.”

In a bid to engage more people on Twitter, broadcasters from the US and Australia, and several other teams competing in the FIFA World Cup will live-stream tournament-related content on the platform, a media report said.

“Within seconds of every goal at this summer’s FIFA World Cup, a highlight will be clipped and posted on Twitter,” SportTechie website reported late on Wednesday.

Every night, broadcasters in the US (Fox Sports) and Australia (SBS) will air live analysis shows on the micro-blogging platform, the report said.

“World Cup 2018 is the most global event in the history of our content partnerships business,” Jay Bavishi, Twitter’s Senior Partnerships Manager for Global Content, was quoted as saying.

Twitter recently commissioned research and said the results showed that more people use Twitter and stay longer on the platform during major live events than on other social media services.

“It is the first place that communities come to watch what’s happening and talk about it. That’s especially true around the soccer community and around World Cup,” Matt Derella, Twitter Vice President, Global Revenue and Partnerships, said.

The platform noted that football “fans are a particularly active bunch with a year-over-year increase in soccer video sharing of 144 per cent”. (IANS)
