FIFA can confirm receipt of an email from a person claiming to have made allegations related to the Qatar 2022 bid process and now retracting these allegations.

FIFA has no specific comments on this but would like to remind about the following media releases (click on the right side to read them) :
"FIFA asks The FA and The Sunday Times to provide reports and evidence on 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup™ claims"
"No evidence on allegations made against FIFA Executive Committee members at the House of Commons"

Nevertheless, FIFA would like to take this opportunity to make the following statement: In a consistent and correct way, we have repeatedly said that FIFA would not be making any comments on allegations. This policy will continue.

In a consistent and correct way, we have repeatedly said that FIFA can only act upon evidence. This policy will continue. When only allegations are made and no evidence is given, FIFA always stands firmly by its members.
