FIFA President Gianni Infantino is pleased that, following a thorough review, the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has determined that “no violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE) has been committed.” This decision has been accepted by the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, which conducted its own comprehensive review of the decision.

With this matter now resolved, the President and the FIFA administration will continue to focus on developing football as well as their efforts to improve the organisation. Tangible progress has been made in key areas such as ensuring that those who have acted against the interests of football are identified and held to account, improving FIFA’s governance and repairing its reputation, and restoring trust with its stakeholders. This critical work will continue.

The President would like to thank all those who cooperated with the Ethics Committee to ensure that the facts were heard and the truth prevailed.
