By iSportconnect | September 16, 2016
The FIFA Council has appointed PwC Switzerland as the new statutory auditors of FIFA.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino welcomed the decision of the Bureau of the FIFA Council as a further important step in the reform process underway at FIFA.
The appointment of PwC is the result of a thorough, transparent and open selection process conducted by FIFA with several different auditing companies.
The offers received were assessed by the appropriate experts within the FIFA administration who submitted their proposal to the Bureau of the FIFA Council, in consultation with the chair and deputy chair of the Audit and Compliance Committee.
PwC’s appointment will initially be valid until the next FIFA Congress, which will take place in May 2017. This Congress will decide on the appointment of FIFA’s statutory auditors for a full three-year period, as provided for by the FIFA Statutes.
