FIFA is to hold an extraordinary meeting of its Executive Committee in July to discuss potential dates for the election of a new president.
President Sepp Blatter announced his intention to resign earlier this month just four days after his re-election and six days after nine FIFA officials were indicted on charges of racketeering conspiracy and corruption.
Blatter will remain in office until an extraordinary Congress can be held to appoint his successor. December 16 has been reported as the likely date for the Congress.
A FIFA spokesperson told Perform: “An extraordinary Executive Committee meeting is confirmed to take place in July, the precise date to be confirmed within this week.
“On this occasion, various date options for the extraordinary elective Congress will be discussed.”
