Disqualification for 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup

During the team's participation at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup, on 7 July 2011, FIFA announced that two of its players, Song Jong-Sun and Jong Pok-Sim, were provisionally suspended prior to their team’s match against Colombia after failing doping tests during the tournament.[1] On 16 July, FIFA announced that three additional players from North Korea tested positive following target testing of the whole team.[2] On 25 August 2011, the North Korean team was fined US$ 400,000 which is equal to the prize it received by finishing 13th in the 2011 tournament, and was excluded from participation at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.[3]
