Survey prepared by Transparency International

icon fifamoney27 May ~ A poll of more than 35,000 football fans in 30 countries around the world showed that four out of five do not think Sepp Blatter should stand for re-election as FIFA president, and nearly 70 per cent had no confidence in the organisation. The poll was taken before nine current or former FIFA officials were arrested on charges of corruption, and demonstrates the effects of poor governance on the way the governing body is perceived by fans who have no say in the vote for the next president. The poll was prepared by Transparency International, a global anti-corruption movement, alongside the developers of the Forza Football app. Their full findings can be found here.
