FIFA to allow Europe to bid for 2026 World Cup, damaging U.S. hopes

ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not believe boycotting the 2018 World Cup will do any good, following the fallout from Sepp Blatter's re-election for a fifth term as FIFA president.
Russia's Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko has insisted that the 2018 World Cup in Russia is not under threat.

North American countries' hopes of hosting the 2026 World Cup were dealt a blow on Saturday after FIFA decided to allow confederations to host the event eight years after the World Cup is played in their continent.

Last week, FIFA were debating whether to extend that limit to one World Cup per confederation every 12 years, which would have prevented European countries from hosting in 2026 after Russia hosts in 2018.

Election reaction - England's Greg Dyke expects quick Sepp Blatter ouster

FA Chairman Greg Dyke has said that he is not confident but believes it is over for Sepp Blatter.

England's Football Association chairman Greg Dyke says he would be "very surprised" if Sepp Blatter was still FIFA president in two years.

The United States will vote for Jordan's Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein for FIFA president on Friday and not for the embattled Sepp Blatter, despite the potential for reprisals in future World Cup bids if the incumbent is re-elected.

U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati believes that Prince Ali can unseat Blatter when the organization votes for its leader in Zurich.

"I was supposed to get the FIFA approval much earlier," Zelalem told ESPN FC in a phone interview Wednesday night. "When there was a week left, I didn't think it would happen because I had been waiting four of five months. It was rough."

In the end, Zelalem received...

CONCACAF provisionally bans indicted president Jeffrey Webb

FBI Director James Comey has said that their initial arrests of FIFA officials in relation to corruption and bribery are just the beginning of the investigation.

CONCACAF has provisionally banned president Jeffrey Webb one day after his U.S. indictment on corruption charges, the organizing body announced on Thursday.

Webb led the confederation that oversaw football in North and Central America and the Caribbean for FIFA and was one of many officials arrested in Switzerland on Wednesday as the U.S. pursues charges tied to bribery over tournaments under his watch.

CONCACAF promoted senior vice president Alfredo Hawit of Honduras to replace Webb.
