FIFA, world football’s governing body, will receive an additional $92 million in compensation for losses sustained in global football corruption schemes, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday.

In August, the department said FIFA was going to receive $201 million in compensation for the losses.

The money was seized from the bank accounts of former officials who were involved in the schemes and then prosecuted following a probe into years of corruption in world football.

The Justice Department said in a statement on Thursday:

This distribution of approximately $92 million as compensation for losses suffered highlights the importance of asset forfeiture as a critical tool in this endeavor.
