Former Tongan football boss appeals FIFA ban

10:17 am on 6 May 2011

Tonga's Ahongalu Fusimalohi has appealed to sport's highest court to overturn his two-year ban from football.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport confirmed that Fusimalohi and Nigeria's Amos Adamu have both appealed against their suspension.

Adamu was found guilty of seeking bribes during 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding process, while Fusimalohi was found guilty on separate corruption charges.

The court has not fixed a hearing date.

In February, Fifa's Appeal Committee upheld the decisions taken by the Ethics Committee in November.
