UEFA President Michel Platini Pushes His Pan-European Euro 2020 Plan
Published November 14, 2012
TERM LIMITS: The AP reported a FIFA working group began talks that "could result in age and term limits" for world football leaders and change how World Cup hosts are chosen. FIFA said that a 10-point proposal "will be sent to national federations by the panel of chief execs and legal directors from FIFA and its six continental confederations." The FIFA Congress of 209 members "is scheduled to meet in May and vote on ongoing reforms promised by President Sepp Blatter after a series of bribery and bidding scandals." Proposals under discussion "include an age limit of 72 for FIFA election candidates and a two-term, eight-year limit for the president." All of FIFA's members likely "will be asked to choose future World Cup hosts instead of the FIFA exec committee" (AP, 11/12).
