Infantino Unopposed for FIFA Elections



FIFA President Gianni Infantino is set to serve a second term after world football’s governing body said on Wednesday he would be the only candidate for June’s vote.

The 48-year-old has been in charge of Fifa since February 2016, after succeeding the disgraced Sepp Blatter following the corruption scandal which rocked the organisation.

Since being elected in February 2016, Infantino oversaw expanding the World Cup to 48 teams in 2026, and picking the United States, Canada and Mexico to host it.

The election will take place on June 5 in Paris ahead of the women’s World Cup.
