IFFHS STATEMENT ON FIFA SCANDAL
The International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS), as the officially recognized World Federation for Football History and Statistics, condemns any form of fraud, corruption, collusion or action which threatens the true integrity of the game anywhere in the world.
The current situation with FIFA officials relating to allegations of corruption and bribery is sad and embarrassing news. The massive investigation conducted by the US Department of Justice sends a clear message to sporting officials who seek to serve their own interest ahead of the sport they represent.
Members of the IFFHS support the investigation and re-iterate their pledge to fully maintain the principles of sport and the FIFA motto of Fair Play.
