Football Legal # 4 (December 2015)

27 May 2015 will probably remain a turning point in the world of football. The FBI indicted nine FIFA officials and five corporate executives for corruption and a racketeering conspiracy.

However, were all these scandals not a necessary evil for the football business to enter a more transparent era?

The question of an independent and impartial football justice is also a major debate in current affairs. This issue of Football Legal devotes its Special Report to it.

The football stakeholders must now discuss what reforms must be taken to ensure that a new leaf is turned.

The 6th International Congress on Football Law in Madrid was already a great opportunity to discuss this important matter.

On top of that, a new FIFA President will be elected on 26 February 2016. He will have the heavy responsibility of implementing the right reforms for football.
