CONCACAF Takes Steps to End Racist Behavior 1/13/14
MIAMI - Soccer referees in North and Central America and the Caribbean can now stop matches due to instances of racist chants or other behavior.
The regional governing body CONCACAF says that its executive committee had adopted a protocol to deal with racist incidents.
Referees should stop games and order a public-address announcement calling for racist behavior to cease. If racist behavior continues, the referee should suspend matches for 5-10 minutes and order a second announcement.
As a third step and last resort, referees may decide to abandon the match.
