Former Brazilian Football Confederation president Jose Maria Marin has been banned from all football-related activities for life.

Marin was one of seven FIFA officials arrested at a hotel in Zurich in May 2015, and was sentenced to four years in a US jail for corruption in 2018.

He was convicted of accepting bribes from sports marketing companies in exchange for contracts to broadcast tournaments such as the Copa America.
