"The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has banned Mr Marco Polo Del Nero, President of the Brazilian FA (CBF), for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level," FIFA said in a published statement.
The organization pointed out that Del Nero was accused of involvement in corruption schemes, violating five articles of the FIFA Code of Ethics.
"The investigation against Mr Del Nero was opened on 23 November 2015 and referred, inter alia, to schemes in which he received bribes in exchange for his role in awarding contracts to companies for the media and marketing rights to various football tournaments, including the CONMEBOL Copa America, the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores and the CBF Copa do Brasil," the statement noted.
Del Nero will also have to pay 1 million Swiss francs (over $1 million). The decision entered into force on Friday as Del Nero was notified about the decision.
In December, FIFA decided to ban Del Nero for 90 days, while he himself has refuted all the accusations.
