Lee Harmon

Cook Islands Football President banned by FIFA

An investigation into Mr Harmon, who is also a Vice-President of the Oceania Football Confederation and member of the FIFA Council, concerning the resale of tickets for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, was opened in July last year, two weeks after the end of the tournament.

FIFA said that Harmon had "mutually agreed" the sanction with its ethics committee in a plea bargain.

He is banned from all football-related activity at national and international level for three months, effective immediately.
