Fifa president Gianni Infantino will stand unopposed to be re-elected for a third term in the post. The 52-year-old Swiss-Italian became head of football’s governing body when he succeeded Sepp Blatter in February 2016, and was re-elected in 2019.
Fifa said that “following the call for election” in March 2022, its member associations had only proposed Infantino as a candidate. He will be re-elected at the 73rd Fifa Congress in Kigali, Rwanda on 16 March.
Blatter was Fifa president for 17 years until he was banned amid a corruption scandal in 2015.
