Venold Coombs, president of the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines football federation (SVGFF), was found guilty of bribery and corruption.
He was also fined $40,000.
FIFA said in a statement: "The investigatory chamber analysed allegations that Mr Coombs had sold tickets purchased by the SVGFF and by him personally, in his capacity as a FIFA standing committee member, for a profiteering mark-up."
It added: "Mr Coombs is therefore banned for two years from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level."
