FIFA suspended Uruguay forward Luis Suarez nine games for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini on June 24 in Uruguay's 1-0 win.

FIFA suspended Uruguay forward Luis Suarez nine games for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini on June 24. 

In addition, FIFA has banned Suarez from participating in any football-related activity, per the organization's official website: 

"The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has reached a decision in the case related to Luis Suarez of Uruguay following an incident that occurred during the FIFA World Cup match between Italy and Uruguay on 24 June 2014. 

"The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has decided that:

"The player Luis Suarez is regarded as having breached art. 48 par. 1 lit. d of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC) (assault), and art. 57 of the FDC (an act of unsporting behaviour towards another player).

"The player Luis Suarez is to be suspended for nine (9) official matches. The first match of this suspension is to be served in the upcoming FIFA World Cup fixture between Colombia and Uruguay on 28 June 2014. The remaining match suspensions shall be served in Uruguay's next FIFA World Cup match(es), as long as the team qualifies, and/or in the representative team's subsequent official matches in accordance with art. 38 par. 2a) of the FDC. 

"The player Luis Suarez is banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) for a period of four (4) months in accordance with art. 22 of the FDC. 

"A stadium ban is pronounced against the player Luis Suarez in accordance with art. 21 of the FDC as follows: the player Luis Suarez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium during the period of the ban (point 3). The player Luis Suarez is prohibited from entering the confines of any stadium in which the representative of Uruguay is playing while he has to serve the nine-match suspension (point 2). 

"The player Luis Suarez is ordered to pay a fine in the amount of CHF 100,000.

"The decision was notified to the player and the Uruguayan FA today. 

"'Such behaviour cannot be tolerated on any football pitch, and in particular not a FIFA World Cup when the eyes of millions of people are on the stars on the field. The Disciplinary Committee took into account all the factors of the case and the degree of Mr. Suarez's guilt in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Code. The decision comes into force as soon as its communicated,' said Claudio Sulser, chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee."

Uruguay FA will appeal FIFA's ban on Suarez, according to PA Sport (via ESPN FC): 

"Uruguay FA president Wilmar Valdez said on Thursday that the association will appeal against the Luis Suarez sanctions. 

"Suarez was banned for nine international matches -- and from all football activity for four months -- after being found guilty of biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini. 

"Uruguay and Liverpool striker Suarez, 27, bit the defender during the latter stages of the 1-0 victory that secured their place in the knockout stages. 

"FIFA launched an immediate investigation, and an independent disciplinary panel confirmed the punishment on Thursday. 

"Speaking outside the FIFA hotel in Rio de Janeiro, Valdez told reporters: 'We are preparing for our appeal now, we have three days to do it. 

"'It is an excessive decision and there was not enough evidence and I have seen more aggressive incidents recently. 

"'It is a severe punishment. I don't know exactly which arguments they used but it is a tough punishment for Suarez. 

"'It feels like Uruguay has been thrown out of the World Cup. We all know what Suarez means to Uruguay and to football around the world -- not having Suarez would be a loss to any team,' Valdez said. 

"The sanctions mean that, in addition to his World Cup immediately being over, Suarez will miss nine Premier League games as well as Champions League and Capital One Cup matches."

For his part, Brazilian striker Fred agreed with Valdez's assessment, per ESPN FC: 

"It's undeniable that Suarez made a mistake, but I think this punishment was too harsh. As a fellow player and a human being I understand what footballers go through on the pitch. 

 

"There's a lot of tension and disputes for spaces; it's always very nervy. 

"A punishment as tough as that can destroy the life of an athlete. Everybody is laying it down on him. While I do think Suarez deserved some punishment, I really wished we could all still see him playing in this World Cup." 

Uruguay will take on Colombia on June 28 at 4:00 p.m. EST.
