Ecuador enters FIFA following Castillo’s deemed eligibility
Yesterday in its verdict, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) stated that Ecuador’s Byron Castillo would participate in the forthcoming world cup 2026 in Qatar. The case was dragged by the Football Federation of Chile (FFCH), and the Peruvian Football Federation(FPF) to CAS after FIFA’s Committee members disqualified this team.
However, the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) will get a three-point withdrawal at the second edition of the competition to the World Cup qualifying campaign and a fine of $101,600 for the document having incorrect information. In one of the reports, CAS stated that the decision was based on the fact that Ecuadorean authorities acknowledged the player’s nationality, and now Byron Castillo was eligible to play a preliminary round of the FIFA world cup Qatar 2022 after paying a fine.
However, to maintain the curiosity among the fans for their favorite sports, most of the FIFA betting sites are rushing to offer attractive prizes and bonuses on FIFA e-leagues where the players can wager on eSports.
CAS said they agreed to the false information provided on Castillo’s passport, but the nation was eligible to enter the qualifying series of the 2026 World cup. Ecuador has been placed in Group A, adjoining Qatar. The South American team would host the opening match that would be held on November 20.
