FIFA: On possible plans to relocate to Züriberg


Sepp Blatter: “It’s an open secret that Infantino wants to leave Zurich with FIFA.”

Whenever the FIFA soccer family communicated with its mother ship, it was from Züriberg, the huge headquarters next to the zoo. In the meantime, however, not even the mail from Zurich seems to arrive. In any case, this is how former FIFA president Sepp Blatter (86), the fallen pope of football, sees it, who is following a World Cup in the living room for the first time, but apparently still has some insides fluttering at home: ” It is interesting that the official documents regarding the FIFA electoral congress were sent to the national associations from Doha, and not from the headquarters in Zurich,” Valaisan said on Sunday.

Unsurprisingly, rumors about FIFA’s desire to control him are persistent. As much as the president Gianni Infantino (52) publicly assures that moving is not a problem (“Fifa stays in Zurich”), Blatter is convinced of the opposite: “It is a fact that Infantino wants to leave Zurich with Fifa in secret.” Blatter, at times the most prominent Swiss, was recently cleared of corruption along with Michel Platini (67).
