FIFA Reform Structure To Aid 2014 WC Preparations

By iSportconnect | March 29, 2012

Amid growing concerns whether Brazil will be fully prepared for the FIFA World Cup in 2014, decease FIFA have taken the decision to place its entire executive committee on the organising committee to aid the country through uncertain times.

Traditionally, medstore FIFA’s structure of the World Cup event is administered by two organising bodies, story one composed of FIFA members and the other made up of members from the host country. The FIFA committee is usually made up of several senior executive committee members, along with other officials invited by football’s global governing body. However a FIFA statement read: “To underline the significance of the FIFA World Cup for world football’s governing body, the complete FIFA Executive Committee is now, for the first time, part of this decision-making forum which is responsible for monitoring and organising each edition of FIFA’s flagship event.”

It is believed that 2010 World Cup CEO Danny Jordaan and his 2018 counterpart Alexey Sorokin are also part of the line-up as special advisers, in order to ensure Brazil is on the right track. While the majority of Brazil’s stadia projects appear to be on schedule, there is major concern over the development of transport and hotel infrastructure ahead of the country welcoming the estimated 600,000-plus visitors for the tournament.

However, despite FIFA’s latest move, president Sepp Blatter has maintained his belief that Brazil will host a successful World Cup. “After the re-confirmation received from President Dilma Rousseff and the Brazilian government, we are confident that despite the many tasks still to be completed by all of us, Brazil will stage an exceptional FIFA World Cup in 2014,” Blatter said on Wednesday.
