The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has imposed a fine of CHF 30,000 and issued a reprimand against the Argentinian Football Association following an incident that occurred at the friendly match between Argentina and Slovenia played on 7 June in La Plata, Argentina, when members of the Argentinian national team held up a banner stating “Las Malvinas son argentinas”.

The Argentinian FA was deemed to be in breach of art. 60 of the FIFA Stadium Safety and Security Regulations (“Political action”) and art. 52 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (“Team misconduct”). 

The terms of the decision were notified to the Argentinian FA today.
