Following the corruption scandal that rocked FIFA last month leading to the arrest of its officials and resignation of its president, a task force of 11 people has been setup to reform the body. Term limits for officials, central integrity checks for executive committee members and the disclosing of all
salaries and payments to FIFA members will be the main focus of the reform task force.
The set-up of the committee would be like “10 players and a coach” with one key person – the “coach” – driving the process, Blatter announced.
In reaction, Platini said the creation of the panel was “an important step”. Speaking after the FIFA executive committee meeting he said: “We must now make sure that the reforms outlined today will be undertaken in a swift and effective manner. We need to reform Fifa and we need to do it now.”
