In announcing his intention to stand as a candidate for President of FIFA earlier this year, HRH Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein said: “I am seeking the presidency of FIFA because I believe it is time to shift the focus away from administrative controversy and back to sport.

“This was not an easy decision. It came after careful consideration and many discussions with respected FIFA colleagues over the last few months. The message I heard, over and over, was that it is time for a change.

“The world’s game deserves a world-class governing body — an International Federation that is a service organisation and a model of ethics, transparency and good governance.”
