The Denmark football federation says three of the five approved candidates, Jerome Champagne, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein and Gianni Infantino have confirmed to present their program on Monday.

Each will meet with leaders of the six-nation Nordic group of FIFA member federations: Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

UEFA has no scheduled meeting of its 53 FIFA members before they arrive in Zurich for the Feb. 26 election.

All UEFA members attended a crisis meeting last month in Nyon, Switzerland, to discuss their President Michel Platini, whose FIFA candidature is on hold pending an ethics committee investigation.

The other FIFA candidates are Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa and Tokyo Sexwale.
