The Peruvian Football Association (FPF) has decided to withdraw its appeal against the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee of 27 September 2013 and has informed FIFA of this withdrawal by means of a letter.

The aforementioned decision of the Disciplinary Committee is therefore final and binding and means that the next home match of Peru’s 'A' representative team – the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifier against Bolivia on 15 October 2013 – will be played without spectators.

The sanction, as well as a fine of CHF 20,000 imposed on the FPF by the Disciplinary Committee, relate to crowd disturbance incidents that took place during the preliminary competition match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ between Peru and Uruguay, played in Lima, Peru on 6 September 2013.
