Cleaning Up FIFA

So it has finally happened, the day all passionate football fans around the world have been waiting for. The corrupt governing body of World Football, known as FIFA has finally been exposed, and by of all countries, the United States. On Wednesday May 27th 2015, Swiss authorities in conjunction with The FBI raided the five star Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich as FIFA gathered for its annual meeting. Fourteen people have so far been charged in the two operations. Seven are facing extradition to the US. Of those, six individuals are set to fight the extradition.

So what now Football Fans all over the world are asking??? It is my opinion that FIFA is so rotten to it’s very core, that it can’t be fixed, and should be dissolved. With the understanding International Football would be thrown into chaos for a number of years, I still feel it is necessary and in the end the right thing to happen. A new governing body of World Football needs to be established. It needs to be Headquartered in a country where any future crimes or mis-doings can be dealt with swiftly and justly. I propose The USA or England. The new governing body would have to be made up of all new members. Any one who has previously been a part of FIFA in any capacity, has to be excluded from the new governing body. Term limits would also be in place for all members of the new body, and also for individual member country heads. A clear new set of criteria would need to be established on who is eligible to bid on and host a future World Cup. I understand that this new criteria would eliminate many small countries from being able to host a World Cup in the near future. I can hear the “purists” now saying what?, this can’t be, everyone should have the right to host a World Cup, and in a perfect world, this would be, but it is not a perfect world and sometimes life just isn’t fair!
In the end we are all Football fans who love The Beautiful Game and just want what is best for “our” game. Let’s hope this is a beginning to that end.
