70th FIFA Congress LIVE

The 70th FIFA Congress, which is being held as an online event from Zurich, Switzerland.

Bermuda is represented by Bermuda Football Association President Mark Wade.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino again defended his meetings with Swiss Attorney General Michael Lauber at the worldwide governing body’s virtual Congress.

Criminal proceedings were opened against Infantino in Switzerland in July over dealings with Lauber.

The case centers on undocumented meetings that Lauber and Infantino are alleged to have held in 2016 and 2017.

Infantino was cleared of any wrongdoing by FIFA’s Ethics Commission, which launched and closed a preliminary investigation into the meetings.

He has claimed the meetings with Lauber "were in no way secret and most certainly not illegal", and said he was seeking to assist authorities with investigating past wrongdoings at FIFA.

Infantino cited his recent meeting with United States Attorney General William Barr as an example, claiming he used the opportunity to personally thank the US Department of Justice (DOJ) for their efforts to combat corruption in football.

The Swiss official said meetings with authorities show attempts from the "new FIFA" to deal with the past.
