FIFA In The News

Yesterday, FIFA announced a major relief effort, a plan to distribute $1.5 billion to its 211 member nations.

Today, the organization is in the news on a less positive note:

A criminal case against FIFA president Gianni Infantino was opened by a Swiss special prosecutor on Thursday, plunging the soccer body into a new scandal and potentially threatening the tenure of the man who was brought in to restore its tarnished reputation.

Infantino was brought on to usher in a new era, to right the wrongs of the systemic corruption that defined the Sepp Blatter years. But it seems that maybe not much has changed. This case is one to keep an eye on and I’ll share some more thoughts on the bailout plan later this week.
