FIFA's governance reforms approved

Monday, 02 April 2012


FIFA have agreed to major reforms of its governance, in particular relating to ethics, audit and compliance.

 

The news was confirmed by the President of world football's governing body, Sepp Blatter, at FIFA's Executive Committee meeting in Zurich. Proposals will now be submitted to Congress in Budapest on May 24 and 25 and will include:

 

* New structure of FIFA’s Ethics Committee, with two chambers (investigatory and adjudicatory)

* Scrutinising of specific candidates for office bearers holding functions within FIFA as an official by the Ethics Committee, performing the role of a nomination unit

* Audit and Compliance Committee: increased scope of responsibility of the Audit Committee by adding compliance to its activities

* Immediate appointment by the 2012 FIFA Congress of independent chairmen for the Ethics Committee and the Audit and Compliance Committee (if the above proposals are approved)

* Co-opting of a woman on to the FIFA Executive Committee at the 2012 FIFA Congress; formal election in 2013

* FIFA membership in principle permitted directly (and no longer after a period of two years) if an association is already a member of its confederation

* Integration into the FIFA Statutes in 2013 of last year’s Congress decision that the host of the FIFA World Cup will be appointed by the FIFA Congress on the basis of a shortlist submitted by the FIFA Executive Committee

* Self-reform of the International Football Association Board

 

The proposal of the working group for the international match calendar has also approved the two-year cycle of nine doubl-headers, a move which has been welcomed by the national team manager, Craig Levein.
