Former Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales will stand trial on charges of sexual assault and coercion for kissing forward Jenni Hermoso without her consent after last year’s Women’s World Cup final, a judge confirmed on Wednesday.

Prosecutors are seeking a two-and-a-half year prison sentence for Rubiales for her alleged sexual assault and for allegedly trying to coerce Hermoso into publicly supporting him following the reaction to her actions in the World Cup final. in Sydney.

The judge also ruled that former Spanish coach Jorge Vilda, the sporting director of the Spanish men’s team, Albert Luque, and the federation’s former marketing chief, Rubén Rivera, be tried for trying to pressure Hermoso.

In January, the judge found enough evidence to believe that Rubiales also pressured Hermoso to appear in a video produced and published amid public outrage against her.

A trial date has not been set.

FIFA suspended Rubiales for three years, until after the 2026 men’s World Cup. His ban will expire before the next women’s tournament in 2027. The Spanish sports authority also declared him unfit to hold a position in sports management during three years.
