Former Honduran President Rafael Callejas and FIFA vice-president Alfredo Hawit have been banned from all footballing activity for life by FIFA’s Ethics Committee.
The duo have already both pleaded guilty to corruption charges at the Federal Court in New York City and have now been officially sanctioned by football’s worldwide governing body.
Callejas, who served as the President of Honduras from 1990 to 1994 and led the National Autonomous Federation of Football of Honduras (FENAFUTH) for 13 years, pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy in March.
Hawit, also a former interim head of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), admitted three conspiracy charges the following month.
Callejas is facing an extensive term behind bars as each count against him carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
The former FIFA Marketing and Television Committee member was originally due to be sentenced in August before a decision on his fate was pushed back until January 2017 at the earliest.
Each of the three charges against Hawit could also result in 20 years in jail, it has been reported, while he will also forfeit $950,000 (£768,000/€910,000).
He had previously pleaded not guilty to 12 corruption charges in January, when he also had a request to be placed into house arrest rejected.
The Adjudicatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee supported the view of the Investigatory Chamber, who had recommended the two officials be exiled from the sport for life.
Seventy-three-year-old Callejas and Hawit, 65, were found to have breached several parts of the FIFA Ethics Code.
This included general rules of conduct, loyalty, duty of disclosure, cooperation and reporting, conflicts of interest and bribery and corruption.
"On 28 March 2016, Mr Callejas pleaded guilty to two counts charging him with racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy,” FIFA said in a statement.
"His guilty plea related to one scheme by means of which he asked for and received bribes from sports marketing companies in relation to the awarding of marketing rights for UNCAF region World Cup qualifiers.
"Mr Hawit pleaded guilty on 11 April 2016 to four counts charging him with racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
"His guilty plea relates to schemes by means of which he received bribes from sports marketing companies in exchange for the awarding of contracts for the media and marketing rights to CONCACAF tournaments and UNCAF region World Cup qualifiers."
The continuing criminal investigation in the United States, which has seen more than 40 officials indicted, largely centres on a total of $200 million (£162 million/€192 million) in bribes and kickbacks, which were solicited and received by various football officials concerning marketing and broadcast rights.
