Infantino Re-Elected as FIFA President

IslandStats.com
The 69th FIFA Congress convened today in Paris and, by acclamation, re-elected Gianni Infantino as the President of FIFA until 2023.

Bermuda was represented at the Congress by President Mark Wade, General Secretary David Sabir and Executive member Shequita Parson.

The ninth president in the history of the organization was first elected at an Extraordinary Congress in February 2016 and now starts his first full four-year term of office after running unopposed and being elected by acclamation by FIFA’s 211 member associations.

“In just over three years this organization went from being toxic, almost criminal, to being what it should be: an institution that develops football,” said Infantino when addressing the Congress. “This new FIFA has a mission and a plan for it, which is why the next four years have, in fact, already started: we have laid solid building blocks for the future.”

FIFA’s supreme legislative body approved the Activity Report and financial statements for 2018, as well as the detailed budget for 2020, which includes USD 810 million allocated to investments in football.

The 70th FIFA Congress will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in May 2020.
