FIFA President Sepp Blatter came under fire after Fifa’s vote in December for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, which were awarded to Russia and Qatar respectively.

 

Bin Hammam, the Asian Football Confederation President, said the public would have more confidence in Fifa if the process was opened up to scrutiny.

 

The election for a new president takes place at the two-day Fifa congress in Zurich, which starts on the 31st of May.

Blatter, 75, has been in charge of world football’s governing body since June 1998, and has not been challenged since 2002, when he defeated African Confederation President, Issa Hayatou by 139 votes to 56.
