The ethics committee of FIFA oversees the allocation and bidding process of the 2022 World Cup

FIFA's ethics committee met yesterday, Monday, March 15, 2010, under the chairmanship of Swiss Claudio Sulser. Sulser has recently been appointed as the new chairman of this committee. During this meeting, the progress of the bidding process for the organization of the 2018 and WC 2022 World Cup was assessed.

FIFA President Joseph Blatter opened the meeting and emphasized the importance of the committee: " Football is more than a game. In its socio-cultural approach, football is hope, it accommodates emotions and it is the school of life. Football is also very important for the economy. All this brings not only social responsibility, but also moral dedication. Partly for this reason, it is important to have an independent ethics committee that complies with fair play and the Code of Ethics. "

Chairman Sulser said: " As a former professional football player, I am very honored to be the chairman of this committee. I am sure that we will deliver positive work as a team, with a transparent approach and with the Code of Ethics in mind to protect the integrity of football. "

The committee has decided to to send bidders to the 2018 and 2022 World Cup to remind them that they have signed for a World Football Championship with respect for fair play. The ethics committee will continue to assess whether all rules regarding the bid and the allocation go well.

The ethics committee was established in June 2006 as a new and independent legal entity. The Ethics Committee operates alongside the Disciplinary Committee and Appeal Committee. As an independent legal entity, the committee has decisive control and the option of imposing sanctions in accordance with the Code of Ethics. The committee also has the authority to monitor the allocation of the 2018 World Cup and the 2022 World Cup.
