UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Jérôme Champagne has called for a strengthening of National Associations as he detailed his "programme for the twenty-first century FIFA" and reform of the the world governing body's Executive Committee.

The Frenchman today sent these two letters to all 209 of FIFA's members as he presses ahead with his campaign for the Presidency.

In the letters, Champagne outlined plans to set aside the majority of seats on the Executive Committee of FIFA for the Presidents of National Associations, in order to strengthen the overall power of these bodies.

He would also see these positions selected at the same time as the election of the FIFA President at the annual Congress.

"This would create, and it would be a first, a true 'governing majority' in favour of consistency," he said.

While these Presidents would be elected onto the FIFA Executive Committee, Champagne also outlined plans to see them lose their seats if they lose their domestic responsibility.

"Their replacement could be done by the President of the national association of the continent that was not elected but who received the next lowest number of votes in the initial election," Champagne added.

"Another option would be a new election at the next FIFA Congress for the remainder of the four years of the initial term."


Champagne has also highlighted the need for "a new equilibrium between the continents, fairer and more representative, in at least four areas."

These consist of the election of the President and the first vice-president together on the same "ticket", an additional seat on the Executive Committee for the five non-European continents, expansion of the FIFA administration across the globe and an immediate discussion on the allocation of the 32 World Cup spots.

The idea of the positions being elected on the same "ticket" would, according to Champagne, ensure "the legitimacy of the acting President if the elected President of FIFA were unable to continue to perform his duties."

He added: "It will also be a strong symbol of the universality of our organisation, and the duty to take into account the diverse needs of football across the planet."

The duo would have to be from different continents in order for this second point to become valid, the Frenchman explained.

In his letters, Champagne castigates that FIFA identifies $990 million (£613 million/€774 million) in administrative costs, but injected only $900 million (£557 million/€703 million) in development assistance.

He, therefore, promises to reduce administrative costs by five per cent and ensure the investment of this money go towards development aid, including building 400 pitches over the next four years.
