CONCACAF Disciplinary Committee Fines Costa Rica’s Head Coach

MIAMI, FL (Saturday, July 20, 2013) - The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) announced today that its Gold Cup Disciplinary Committee has fined Costa Rica Head Coach Jorge Luis Pinto the amount of $5,000 (five thousand dollars), and has given him an official warning for future incidents.

The fine comes as a result of infringements by Mr. Pinto to Article 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code that emanated from public criticism of the Confederation during his press conference following the group stage game against Belize in Salt Lake City, Utah.
