The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football has asked a New York federal judge to reconsider an order denying it restitution from former soccer officials convicted in the sprawling FIFA corruption scandal.

CONCACAF told U.S. District Judge Pamela Chen on Tuesday that her Nov. 20 order denying the organization restitution overlooked its argument that it should be allowed to recoup its costs for reacquiring the broadcast rights to a South American soccer tournament that were the subject of Juan Angel Napout and Jose Maria Marin’s bribery scheme.

Judge Chen in August sentenced Napout, the former head of the South American soccer confederation, known as CONMEBOL, and Marin, a former Brazilian soccer federation president, to nine and four years in prison, respectively, for their roles in a wide-ranging graft conspiracy in international soccer.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York had pushed for CONMEBOL to recoup around $55 million in lost revenues but advocated for far smaller restitution payments for CONCACAF and FIFA.
