It’s a story that shook the world of sports in 2015. Executives from across the globe indicted for bribery, fraud and embezzlement in the FIFA Corruption Scandal. FIFA – the organization that runs world football – had been investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for years. Many of the allegations centered on bid bribes to host the games and vote-buying to obtain broadcasting rights to televise them. The corruption trial has been underway in New York and some of Latin America’s top football officials are being sentenced.

The 2022 World Cup is scheduled to be played in Qatar. It’s the first time an Arab nation will host the games. Despite the FIFA Corruption Scandal there have been no plans announced to alter the location for 2022.

Correspondent Dan Williams gives us the latest from New York.

What is it like to be kicked out of an executive position, to lose almost all your friends, and to be vilified by so many? Joseph “Sepp” Blatter knows all about it. For almost two decades as president of FIFA, football’s world governing body, Blatter not only rubbed shoulders with the rich and powerful, he also headed a highly lucrative business, one that racked up USD 2 billion in revenue per year. Suspended after being accused of wrongdoing, he is currently serving a six-year ban from participating in FIFA activities. In this week’s Executive Talk with Editor in Chief Urs Gredig, the 82-year-old Blatter speaks about the mistakes he made, how much he’s suffered from the allegations, and why being born prematurely has helped him become a lifelong fighter.
