The Swiss Football Association (SFV) look to have avoided a ban from all sporting activity after docking rebel club Sion 36 points for fielding ineligible players.

The SFV were threatened with expulsion from all competitions by world football's governing body FIFA if they failed to punish Sion, who were kicked out of the Europa League by UEFA earlier this season after fielding players they had signed during a transfer embargo.

FIFA told the SFV there would be a blanket ban on Swiss football if action was not taken by January 13.
