Banned duo vow to fight ethics ruling.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter and UEFA boss Michel Platini have been suspended for eight years from all football-related activities following an ethics investigation.
They were found guilty of breaches surrounding a PS1.3m ($2m) "disloyal payment" made to Platini in 2011.
The FIFA ethics committee found Blatter and Platini had demonstrated an "abusive execution" of their positions. r
Blatter, 79, said at a news conference: "I will fight for me and for FIFA." Platini said the decision was a "masquerade" intended to "dirty" his name.
Both men continue to deny wrongdoing and intend to appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
Swiss Blatter and 60-year-old Frenchman Platini have also been fined PS33,700 ($40,000) and PS54,000 ($80,000) respectively.
FIFA boss since 1998, Blatter had already announced he was quitting with a presidential election in February.
Platini was tipped as a future leader of football's world governing body and is a three-time European Footballer of the Year.
He is also a former captain of France and has been in charge of UEFA - European football's governing body - since 2007.
