FIFA vote for reform


FIFA has passed a package of reforms at Friday's extraordinary congress in Zurich.

Football's world governing body has come in for sharp criticism in the last 12 months with a number of high-profile members suspended following the investigation into corruption and the reform package is aimed at increasing transparency.

The new reforms, which were voted in by 179 of the 207 eligible member associations, include, the disclosure of salaries, promotion of women in football, a new FIFA council and a clear separation of commercial and political decision-making.

“We stand united in our determination to put things right, so that the focus can return to football once again,” said Acting FIFA President Issa Hayatou. “The hard work of restoring trust and improving how we work begins now.”

“This will create a system of stronger governance and greater diversity that will give football a strong foundation on which to thrive. It will help to restore trust in our organisation. And it will deter future wrongdoing.”

Later on Friday, the Congress will also elect a new FIFA president.
