FIFA president Blatter opens 61st FIFA congress amid criticism CCTV News
FIFA has held its annual congress in Zurich amid allegations of corruption and criticism over an impending vote for a new president. Beleaguered president, Sepp Blatter, formally opened the 61st FIFA Congress on Tuesday. He warned of the dangers world soccer's governing body is facing. Blatter is expected to be re-elected FIFA president for a fourth term on Wednesday. However, some associations could call for the election to be postponed due to the corruption claims. FIFA officials Mohamed bin Hammam and Jack Warner were barred from all business pending a full inquiry, into allegations, that Caribbean football officials were paid 40-thousand US dollars each to back bin Hamman's FIFA presidential bid.
