Bin Hammam wants open World Cup bidding process

first_imgFifa presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam has stated that he will make the bidding process for future World Cups more open if he is elected to the post.Bin Hammam said Fifa was not corrupt but told the BBC the organisation needed to be more transparent.“We need to explain decision making – people are making decisions that affect millions,” he told BBC sports editor David Bond.Bin Hammam added: “We belong to the people – acting on behalf of them.”Fifa president Sepp Blatter came under fire after Fifa’s vote in December for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, which were awarded to Russia and Qatar respectively.There were allegations of corruption in the bidding process and two executive committee members were suspended, while four other officials were sanctioned. Bin Hammam, the Asian Football Confederation president, said the public would have more confidence in Fifa if the process was opened up to scrutiny.“It’s reasonable and logical to vote openly – it happens in other organisations, why shouldn’t it happen in Fifa?” he said.The election for a new president takes place at the two-day Fifa Congress in Zurich, which starts on 31 May.Blatter, 75, has been in charge of world football’s governing body since June 1998, and has not been challenged since 2002 when he defeated African confederation president Issa Hayatou by 139 votes to 56.Source: BBClast_img read more
