FIFA’s new rule about racist soccer fans will go into affect next month for the 2006 World Cup. Basically if fans are judged to be racist against an opposing team, the fan’s team will lose 3 points.
Should be interesting to see how they control that. Soccer fans are crazy enough that they would probably just be racist against their own team to make the opposing team loose 3 points. 🙂

Correction. Fifa actually backtracked on this and got rid of this rule. Check http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=763462006
“Weeks later, however, Fifa backtracked, saying teams would not be docked points for fans’ racist behaviour during the tournament as policing the rules could prove too complicated at short notice.”
Intresting way to combat racism though
Well, the WC is over but I never heard of that planned rule at all. It sounds ridiculous!
