THE Football Association of Wales says it will appeal against the sanctions imposed by FIFA over its commemoration of Remembrance Day during the World Cup qualifier against Serbia in Cardiff on November 12.
The FAW was fined 20,000 Swiss francs (just under £16,000) by the sport's governing body on December 19 for the displays of poppies around the stadium.
FIFA interpreted the poppy as a political symbol, but the FAW disputed this at the time and has now indicated it will appeal against the fine imposed.
A statement from the association read: "The Football Association of Wales can confirm that it has received written reasons from FIFA's disciplinary committee relating to sanctions imposed during our World Cup qualifier against Serbia on November 12, 2016.
"Following this, the FAW have now informed FIFA of our intention to appeal the decision."
