World Cup bid investigator Michael Garcia quits FIFA ethics committee

Michael Garcia has resigned from the FIFA ethics committee that investigated the bid process to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

GENEVA -- Michael Garcia, the American lawyer who led the investigation into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bid process, has resigned from the FIFA ethics committee in protest over the handling of his findings.

Garcia cited a "lack of leadership" at the top of FIFA in a resignation statement on Wednesday.

He also said he has lost confidence in the independence of his ethics committee colleague, German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert.

FIFA rejects whistleblower complaints over World Cup bid report summary

FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke rules out staging the 2022 World Cup in January as he spoke ahead of the Club World Cup in Marrakech, Morocco.

FIFA has rejected complaints from whistleblowers over the conduct of Hans-Joachim Eckert alleging that the Ethics Committee chairman deliberately breached anonymity clauses in a summary of a report into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids.

Phaedra Almajid, who worked for the Qatar 2022 bid team before losing her job in 2010, and Bonita Mersiades, who worked for Australia's 2022 bid, separately lodged formal complaints against Eckert's 42-page summary of Michael Garcia's independent inquiry.

FIFA technical reports could have been compromised - ethics committee

Harold Mayne-Nicholls has said he could run against Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency.

FIFA's technical report of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids may have been compromised by the head of the inspection team putting pressure on one of the bidding countries by asking for personal favours, according to the ethics committee investigation.

Harold Mayne-Nicholls, the former Chile FA president who led the inspection team, asked for places for his son and nephew at the Aspire academy in Qatar plus tennis coaching opportunities for his brother-in-law, according to investigators.

FIFA: No indications football is involved in Russian sports 'doping' scandal

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke insists talk of boycotting the 2018 World Cup in Russia is nonsense.

FIFA says there are "no indications" that football is implicated in alleged widespread doping and corruption in Russian sports.

World football's governing body says it "monitors carefully the reports concerning doping in Russia and is in close contact" with the World Anti-Doping Agency.

German broadcaster ARD and French sports daily L'Equipe reported on Wednesday that there was systematic doping in athletics, linked to the WADA-accredited laboratory in Moscow and Russian Anti-Doping Agency.

New World Cup allegations surface against Russia, Qatar and England

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke admits that it will take years to rebuild the reputation of football's world governing body following recent developments.

Russia, Qatar and England have all been accused of breaking FIFA rules during the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups in a document published by Parliament.

A dossier compiled by the Sunday Times and published by the Culture, Media and Sport select committee accuses Russia and Qatar of engaging in vote-trading and vote-buying, while England's 2018 bid team are alleged to have engineered a failed vote-swap with their counterparts in the South Korea 2022 bid.

All three organisations have...
