Outgoing Fifa president Sepp Blatter and suspended Uefa boss Michel Platini have had bans from all football-related activities upheld, the BBC reports.
But the suspensions have been reduced from eight to six years by Fifa’s appeals committee.
Both were found guilty of breaches surrounding a £1.3m ($2m) “disloyal payment” to Platini.
They both deny any wrongdoing and Blatter has already said he will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
The committee said “activities and services rendered to Fifa, Uefa and football” was a mitigating factor.
Fifa’s presidential election is due to take place on Friday to find Swiss Blatter’s replacement.
