Fifa president Infantino unveils ‘vision for the future’

Football’s crisis-hit world governing body Fifa says it is still working to regain trust as it launches its “vision for the future”.

In a new document called ‘Fifa 2.0’ the organisation has outlined its key goals following widespread corruption allegations.

President Gianni Infantino said Fifa was building an organisation to “set the standards for others to follow”.

Fifa also wants to take over organising the World Cup after Qatar 2022.

As it stands, host countries are in charge of running the tournament.

“Fifa is a stronger institution today than it was a year ago – and it will be even stronger a year from now,” said secretary-general Fatma Samoura.

Dozens of senior officials were indicted by US prosecutors as a result of the Fifa corruption scandal in 2015, which is said to have involved racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering.
