VIENNA — FIFA President Sepp Blatter faces his toughest audience this week in his campaign to be re-elected.
Blatter arrives Monday for the annual congress of UEFA, whose leaders are supporting all three of his election opponents: Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan, Luis Figo of Portugal and Michael van Praag of the Netherlands.
The 79-year-old Blatter was stung when he last went on UEFA turf, in Sao Paulo last June.

Then, Blatter described the verbal dressing down he got as "the most disrespectful thing I have experienced in my entire life."
UEFA has its own election business Tuesday. The 54 member federations will re-elect their own president, Michel Platini, unopposed.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
