UEFA offices raided


UEFA's offices have been raided in relation to a contract between the organisation and Cross Trading/Teleamazonas which was revealed in the 'Panama Papers' leaks.

It has emerged that former secretary general, and now FIFA president, Gianni Infantino co-signed a TV rights contract in 2006 with two businessmen who have since been caught up in football's corruption scandal.

Infantino has said he is 'dismayed' at the situation but Swiss authorities have raided the offices in Nyon.

"UEFA can confirm that today we received a visit from the office of the Swiss Federal Police acting under a warrant and requesting sight of the contracts between UEFA and Cross Trading/Teleamazonas," a statement from UEFA read.

"Naturally, UEFA is providing the Federal Police with all relevant documents in our possession and will cooperate fully."

Cross Trading owners Hugo and Mariano Jinkis are accused of buying TV rights for the UEFA Champions League only to immediately sell them to Ecuadorian TV broadcaster Teleamazonas for $311,170 (£220,000), almost three times the price.
