Is Blago the Answer to FIFA’s Ethics Problem?

FIFA, the international soccer federation is reeling in allegations of pay-to-play between officials and potential bidders for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup Games.

The federation has asked the chairman of its ethics committee, Claudio Sulser, to “act without delay to take all possible steps, including the possibility of provisional measures” against FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, and the secretary general, Jérôme Valcke and other FIFA officials who are implicated.

The ethics committee will meet on Wednesday and could suspend one or more bidding nations. “FIFA also confirms that the alleged agreements between member associations would also be a clear violation of the bid registration document and the code of ethics.”  “Therefore, an investigation has also been opened into the member associations in question as well as their bid committees,” the commitee said.

HS-News is reaching out to a certain infamous Illinois politician to instruct FIFA on how to maximize gain from selling the World Cup games.
