In a statement released on Thursday, the world football governing body stated that it would start inviting players to make victim statements at disciplinary hearings.

FIFA said they “will not let down victims of racist abuse,” adding they “may be invited by the respective judicial body to make an oral or written victim impact statement.”

“For a first offence, playing a match with a limited number of spectators and a fine of at least 20,000 Swiss francs ($20,000) shall be imposed on the association or club concerned.”
