All too late? – Fifa’s move for change

Fifa appear to be finally learning from the mess that has engulfed the organisation and brought the end of Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini. They have appeared to decide to make a U turn on the decision not to have fixed terms along with more stronger checks on how the organisation is run.

 Fixed term appointments are not a bad thing, but they should have been put in place years ago. Had this been done, we may not have been in this position to begin with. Hindsight though is a wonderful thing.

In my opinion though the whole of the FIFA executive committee should be scrapped and started again. As it stands the Executive committee consists of one president, one Senior Vice President, seven Vice Presidents, sixteen members one Co-opted member for Special Tasks and the General Secretary.

Frankly that seems a ridiculous amount of members in the role of Vice President on an executive committee. Does FIFA actually require seven Vice Presidents? Im not sure it does to be honest. They should instead have one outright president, one deputy president and two Vice Presidents. The members should consist of three members from each of the Associations. An equal balance within the associations would mean equal balance and fairness in FIFA.

Openess should have always been the case with FIFA, especially with such a big organisation. In 2015 it should be the norm without hesitation. Whilst it is is positive, it is very much shutting the door after the horse has bolted.

Notably with the recent events, the changes in FIFA, may require investigations within the other affected to root out any possible issues. Trouble wont be sorted with just an investigation at the highest of the organisations. It needs change all over. We shall though have to wait and see.
