FIFA Bans Ghanaian Referee Joseph Lamptey for Life

ZURICH – The FIFA disciplinary committee announced on Monday that it has banned Ghanaian referee Joseph Odartei Lamptey for life after concluding that he influenced the result of the South Africa-Senegal 2018 World Cup qualifiers match played on Nov. 12, 2016.

In a statement released by FIFA, Lamptey was found guilty of breaching article 69, paragraph 1 (unlawfully influencing match results) of the FIFA disciplinary code.

The FIFA disciplinary committee has decided to ban the Ghanaian match official Joseph Odartei Lamptey from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) at national and international level for life, the statement announced.

All charges against the Ghanaian match official David Lionheart Nii Lartey Laryea, whose behavior had also been the subject of investigations, were dismissed by the FIFA disciplinary committee, FIFA confirmed.

After the match, which South Africa won 2-1, the Senegalese federation asked the African Confederation and FIFA to investigate the actions of the Ghanaian referee.

The Senegalese said that Lamptey adopted outrageous decisions in favor of the South African team.

FIFA concluded its statement by saying that it follows “a zero-tolerance policy” on match manipulation and is committed to protecting the integrity of soccer.
