FIFA is urging football associations to make racist insults a criminal offense and is suggesting players use standard gestures to indicate insults

A five-pillar pledge to combat racism will be presented to FIFA member associations at their annual meeting in Bangkok on Friday.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino vowed months ago to make a global proposal and has consulted with Brazilian star Vinicius Junior, who is black and was repeatedly abused by fans in Spain while playing for Real Madrid.

FIFA also wants to set up a players’ panel to “monitor and advise on the implementation of these measures worldwide.”
