An independent regulatory commission found that Sturridge had instructed his brother to bet on a possible move to Sevilla during the January 2018 transfer window.
Nine of the 11 charges against the striker were dismissed and Sturridge is free to resume his career on July 31 as four weeks of his ban are suspended.
A statement from the FA said: “The regulatory commission found proved charges 3 and 4, which alleged that, in that same transfer window, Mr Sturridge had instructed his brother, Leon, to bet on a possible move by him (Daniel) to Sevilla FC.
“In issuing that instruction, the regulatory commission found that, as a matter of fact, Mr Sturridge had provided his brother with inside information for that purpose.
