For several weeks now, an online petition has been calling for "Suspend Israel from International Sports". The appeal was launched by the left-wing collective movement DiEM25. In the petition paper, fundamental facts are being omitted or deliberately distorted.
Allegations of sexual and moral harassment. A Big Brother setup in the president's office with cameras spying on employees, directors, media and coaches. The heavy presence of plainclothes armed police on election day to intimidate political opponents. A mafia movie? No. Welcome to the CBF.
Denúncias de assédio sexual e moral. Um Big Brother Setup no escritório do presidente com câmeras espionando funcionários, diretores, gerentes, mídia e treinadores. A pesada presença da polícia armada à vista no dia da eleição para intimidar oponentes políticos. Máfia? Bem vindo à CBF.
Wording of the judgement against Sheikh Ahmad: "Selfish actions, bad collaboration, nil awarness of wrongdoing"
We provide subscribers with the latest judgement. Read the document and make up your own mind. Ahmad and his supporters are still lying. To this day, the Olympic family continues to perpetuate lie that the criminal conviction is somehow just a private matter – but the case shows Ahmad's true colors.
Sheikh Ahmad Al-Sabah, the long-time associate of IOC president Thomas Bach, loses both his ministerial post in Kuwait and also in the appeal proceedings against his prison sentence in Switzerland – but his penalty is reduced.
Coming in large numbers to Chad to impose its single-candidate election, FIFA is for the moment empty-handed: the public prosecutor has cancelled the elections, and the security forces have prevented FIFA from passing in force. A failure after that of Guinea a few days earlier.
Le jeu de la FIFA : chantage et élections probablement invalides à la fédération tchadienne de football
Prévues le 30 novembre, les élections de la fédération de football tchadienne ont été suspendues par une décision du Tribunal de Grande Instance. De quoi irriter la FIFA qui a supporté un unique candidat, Ibrahim Foullah, qui attend son procès pour corruption et détournement de deniers publics.
Elections are to be held in the Chadian Football Federation on 30 November. However, an order from the High Court suspended the elections. This has provoked displeasure of FIFA, which supports the single-candidate, Ibrahim Foullah, who is currently awaiting trial for corruption and embezzlement.
The news behind the news on the 2030 World Cup is that the 2034 World Cup will go to the sporting rogue state of Saudi Arabia and the chainsaw monster MBS. It sounds weird: FIFA does not act worse in awarding its mega-events than the IOC does with the Olympics, but comparatively transparently.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino thinks he is in seventh heaven after a case against him was dropped on flimsy grounds. Our readers deserve to see not just the accompanying FIFA propaganda message but the original document - in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and in the original German version.
The most important investigative Olympic journalist has died in 2022, in the year of the sporting rogue states with mega events in China and Qatar. We honor the legacy of Andrew Jennings with THE INQUISITOR project. Read about decades in which our network has been built. This goes beyond journalism.
The documentary "Memórias do Chumbo – O Futebol nos Tempos do Condor", an investigation spanning 4 countries, exposed how the dictatorial governments that ruled South America from the 1960s to the 1980s infiltrated football and used it for their purposes.
Fatma Samoura is stepping down as FIFA's General Secretary. There is no reason to regret that. There is no reason to celebrate Samoura for anything. The woman from Senegal is a princely paid mascot of FIFA dictator Gianni Infantino. She has always covered up for his dirty dealings.
It was not long ago in the Rwandan capital Kigali following FIFA president Gianni Infantino’s re-election by acclamation that Fatma Samoura yelled “I love you, president,” but the love story between the world federation and its current secretary general has come to an end.
Investors assembling a portfolio of football clubs is changing football and existing regulation may not be big enough to cope with the burgeoning phenomenom of multi-club ownerships, which has tied up more than 9,000 football players and swathes of financially weak smaller clubs.
