The degree of diligence of creditors in bankruptcy proceedings is a relevant issue in deciding whether to continue with disciplinary proceedings arising out of Article 64 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC) or to close them. Therefore, a careless and negligent performance of a creditor may lead to the discontinuation of the disciplinary proceedings before FIFA.
