Amid reports that FIFA’s Extraordinary Congress next year could be postponed due to president Sepp Blatter’s suspension, world football’s governing body has confirmed an extraordinary meeting for October 20.
A replacement for Blatter is due to be elected at the congress on February 26 but reports have emerged that a postponement could be on the cards following his and Michel Platini’s initial 90-day bans.
And on Friday, the sport’s governing body said in a statement: “FIFA can today confirm that its Executive Committee will convene in Zurich on Tuesday 20 October 2015 for an extraordinary meeting.
“Further information will be communicated in due course.”
