FIFA Officials Arrive Mexico City For World Congress

FIFA officials are arriving in Mexico City for preliminary talks ahead of the world football body’s congress.

The world governing body, aims to steer the sport out of the crisis in which dozens of FIFA officials have been indicted in a corruption scandal.

The main focus of FIFA’s annual congress, which begins on Friday, will be bringing its 209 member football associations up to speed with recent reforms designed to stamp out corruption.

The congress will also decide on applications for membership from Kosovo and, possibly, Gibraltar, and will also be asked to approve a revised budget for the 2015-2018 cycle to reflect Gianni Infantino’s electoral promises.
