The 62nd FIFA Congress has concluded in Budapest, with all of it streamed live on FIFA.com. Our users have followed the events from the opening ceremony to the press conferences, with other highlights including the debates on the second day.
The Congress kicked off at 17.00 on Thursday with an opening ceremony which featured a festival of music and colour. In particular, the traditional parade of the flags representing the organisation’s 208 member associations struck a unique note this year, with the FIFA anthem played by local virtuoso Felix Lajko and his band. There were also performances by world-renowned pianist Balazs Havasi, rock singer Endi and opera singer Erika Miklosa.
The entire show is available to rewatch as it happened by accessing the video on the right hand side.
Then, the following day at 09.30, the Congress meeting itself got under way, with issues such as FIFA reform on the agenda. Next up was a press conference at 17.00 CET, when FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter answered questions from journalists in Budapest. Like the rest of the Congress, you are invited to relive this conference on FIFA.com.
