Internationale de Football Association

The Fédération Internationale de Football Association ; French for International Federation of Football Associations, Spanish: Federación Internacional de Fútbol Asociación (International Federation of Football Associations) is a non-profit organization that defines itself as an international governing body of association football, football, beach football and football. It is the highest organ of football.

FIFA was founded in 1904 to oversee the international competition between the national associations of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. The membership with headquarters in Zurich now includes 211 national associations. The member countries must also be members of one of the six regional confederations in which the world is divided: Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Central America, and the Caribbean, Oceania, and South America.

Today, FIFA sets a number of goals in its organizational statutes, including the international growth of football, efforts to ensure that football is accessible to all, and the commitment to integrity and fairness. FIFA is responsible for organizing and promoting major international football tournaments, notably the 1930 World Cup and the Women's World Cup in 1991. Although FIFA not only sets the rules for football, it is the responsibility of the International Football Association, the FIFA, it applies and enforces the rules for all FIFA competitions. All FIFA tournaments generate revenue from sponsorship. In 2018, FIFA generated sales of over $ 4.6 billion and ended the 2015-2018 cycle with a net positive of $ 1.2 billion. It had cash reserves of over $ 2.7 billion.

Reports from investigative journalists have linked the FIFA leadership to corruption, bribery and electoral fraud in connection with the election of FIFA President Sepp Blatter and the organization's decision to award the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar respectively. These allegations led to charges against nine senior FIFA officials and five US Department of Justice executives for blackmail, cable fraud and money laundering. On 27 May 2015, several of these officials were arrested by Swiss authorities, who at the same time initiated a separate criminal investigation by the organization of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. It is expected that those of these officials who have been indicted in the United States will also be extradited to bring charges. Many officials, including Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, have been suspended by the FIFA Ethics Committee. At the beginning of 2017, reports were released on FIFA President Gianni Infantino, who tried to prevent the re-election of the two chairs of the Ethics Committee, Cornel Borbély and Hans-Joachim Eckert, during the FIFA Congress in May 2017. Infantinos followed on 9 May 2017. The FIFA Council has decided not to extend the mandates of Borbély and Eckert. Together with the chairmen, 11 out of 13 committee members were removed.
