FIFA council has made numerous decisions as they prepare for the slow return of the football season. The biggest focus is now on – spitting players. Just a while ago, this was something nobody would look twice. However, after the coronavirus outbreak, this has become a dangerous practice.

FIFA council wants to consider every instance before getting back on the field
The act of spitting in football is a very common practice. Despite it not being so hygienic, it wasn’t a problem until we met with a virus which spreads through saliva.

Forgetting about a small instance as this one could possibly make them shut down the competition once again. So at this moment, they can’t be careful enough.
The football administration has prepared possible punishments for this kind of behaviour. The Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden department will help with the discussions to restart the season. On a weekly basis, the sports governing bodies will have a meeting with medical officials. The representatives of the Public Health England will also include in the discussion.
