Fifa disbands its anti-racism taskforce declaring that the job is done
• Force established in 2013 ‘has completely fulfilled its mission’ says Fifa
• Dismay at decision with incidents on the rise in World Cup hosts Russia
Fifa has disbanded its anti-racism task force, declaring the work complete despite ongoing concerns about discriminatory behaviour in Russia, the hosts of the 2018 World Cup.
Fifa has written to members of the task force to say that it has “completely fulfilled its temporary mission” and “is hereby dissolved and no longer in operation.”
