We don’t have the time to wait – The Fifa debacle continues

Today at a news conference, briefly interrupted by Simon Brodkin (More commonly known as Lee Nelson), Sepp Blatter announced that FIFA had taken some important decisions, one of those decisions being that the extraordinary committee will elect a new president. That’s the good news, the bad news is that this election wont take place till February 26 in 2016. Which means we are lumbered with Blatter for another seven months. It always too good to be true when Blatter said he would stand down, that it would actually be straight away.

Football fans around the world will be hoping that these seven months will pass quickly. The mess that FIFA finds itself in, means that having to wait till 2016 for definite change, is unacceptable. With the legal action and various arrests taking place, the organisation cannot seriously move forward with a clear vision whilst Blatter leads. How long will it be before more sponsors call time on FIFA.

Ideally who ever takes over as the FIFA President, will be someone who is more game focused and not leaning towards any national association for favours. Whilst the successful candidate may not be able to change the World Cup 2018 process,  they will have the chance to sort things out and reopen the  2022 World Cup host selection before its too late. The reason why it will be too late to change anything is due to the fact there are four days till the draw for the 2018 World Cup qualifying takes place.

In 2016 we will see either the death of FIFA or the raising of a new organisation that brings a positive new organisation.
