In response to a number of inquiries concerning its investigation of the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Investigatory Chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee released the following statement:

"After months of interviewing witnesses and gathering materials, we intend to complete that phase of our investigation by June 9, 2014, and to submit a report to the Adjudicatory Chamber approximately six weeks thereafter. The report will consider all evidence potentially related to the bidding process, including evidence collected from prior investigations."
