FIFA to brief executive committee on US, Swiss probe

22 September 2015, 18:10

Zurich — FIFA will update its executive committee members this week on the American and Swiss corruption investigations which involve some of them.

The two-day session starting Thursday will be chaired by President Sepp Blatter, who is an expected target of both federal cases.

Blatter's reluctance to visit countries which have an extradition treaty with the United States appears to have affected FIFA's business schedule.

FIFA says the executive committee will decide Friday on the date and place of its next meeting.

That had previously been scheduled to take place on Dec. 17-18 in Japan, which hosts the Club World Cup and where Blatter could risk arrest.

FIFA says this week's meeting will approve an agenda for the extraordinary congress in Zurich on Feb. 26 when Blatter's successor will be elected.
