Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

Reportedly Infantino intends to sell essentially all FIFA's intellectual rights, including the World Cup, to an investor group. The Japanese Softbank is rumored to be the main investor, financed by Saudi petrodolllars.


For a cool USD 25 billions!


Now, he may be unlikely to get that deal through so he appears to do it all behind closed doors. Still, no council member appears to raise any concerns or even questions publicly, no national club, not the UEFA, nobody!

Don't try to tell me this doesn't spell corruption. What probably got reduced under Blatter is back again larger than ever after less than three years under Infantino.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

I fell of my chair reading this…

what is he going to do next? FIFA is an IP organisation. What would be left after signing away the IP, organising the tournaments as an operations entity for the rightsholder..

don't get it

Scandal circles Swiss prosecutor at heart of FIFA case

Meeting room three of the Schweizerhof hotel in Bern must be a forgettable place. Gianni Infantino, head of football’s world governing body FIFA, has no recollection of being there two years ago. His old friend, Rinaldo Arnold, a cantonal prosecutor, does not recall being there with him. And nor, apparently, does Michael Lauber, Switzerland’s federal prosecutor.

Perhaps because of such forgetfulness, Lauber is now fighting for his political survival, after Switzerland’s highest court ruled on Wednesday that not only had the meeting taken place – and two others before it – but that it had constituted a serious breach of protocol.

Will it ever stop raining sh#t at FIFA?

Additionally it looks like the Federal Prosecutor’s investigation into the global Odebrecht bribery case embroiling Brazil’s national oil company, Petrobras, and the multibillion-dollar embezzlement scandal at 1MDB, the Malaysian sovereign wealth fund are also tainted and possibly may collapse.
