Sun Nigeria still risks ban –FIFA By JOE APU on September 10, 2014 · Sports World soccer ruling body, FIFA despite being happy with the return to status quo in NFF administration has sent a fresh threat that Nigeria would be banned if at any point the electoral process is interfered with. This latest decision was contained in a letter signed by the FIFA Secretary General, Jerome Valcke to the Nigeria Football Federation yesterday, while acknowledging an earlier letter from the NFF, which indicated that Maigari’s board had returned to office without hindrance. “We also note that the persons claiming to have been elected vacated the premises of the NFF. Against this background, we would like to confirm that the condition set in FIFA’s aforementioned correspondences of September 3, 2014, have been complied with and that the NFF, is accordingly not suspended. “We would also inform you that should the electoral process by any interference or mishap, the case will be referred again-and again without ...
SA referee out of World Cup 2014-06-11 Daniel Bennett’s 2014 FIFA World Cup dream has been shattered after he was ruled out of the list of match officials to officiate at the 2014 World Cup tournament. The former South African referee of the Year was selected as support referee for the world football spectacle taking place in Brazil from 12 June -13 July 2014. However, the diligent official picked up an injury in a routine training session at the Zico Centre in Rio on Tuesday, 3 June where the niggling injury was detected. “The medical investigations revealed the seriousness of the injury which means a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks for cure. The main consequence is that Mr Bennett will be unable to officiate and support matches at this 2014 FIFA World Cup,” said FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke in a letter to the South African Football Association (SAFA) and CAF.
SAO PAULO, June 6: Football supremo Sepp Blatter voiced confidence on Thursday that Brazil would deliver a successful World Cup, as the city hosting the tournament’s opening match grappled with transport chaos. Speaking in Sao Paulo just one week before the World Cup kicks off in the sprawling city, FIFA president Blatter predicted tensions threatening the tournament would subside once the football began. “We at FIFA, we are confident, it will be a celebration,” Blatter said. “I’m an optimist. After the tournament kicks off I think there will be a better mood.” FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke insisted preparations were on track but acknowledged the opening weeks of the tournament would be the “most challenging.” “We are in control, we have nothing to fear in the coming days,” Valcke said. The assurances were at odds with the chaos gripping Sao Paulo on Thursday, however, as sub ...

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar looks set to be played in November after FIFA’s secretary general stated that the tournament “will not be in June or July”. Jerome Valcke, who has been given the task of looking at alternative dates due to the fierce heat of the summer in Qatar, says it is likely to be held some time between November 15 and January 15. Valcke may have jumped the gun – FIFA insists it is just his personal view and that no decision has been made – but it now looks certain to be in the winter of 2022 with November the most likely date. Via Yorkshire Evening Post
By Cinderella Man:- Secretary-general of FIFA, Jerome Valcke has said that football's governing body has ruled out a summer World Cup in Qatar 2022.

Either this is Lionel Messi's year or it will never be Lionel Messi's year. Gerard Julien/AFP/Getty Images As FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke unravelled the name inside the ball, he couldn’t help but smirk. Not only was his home country, France, avoiding treacherous Group D, the team that did land in the group with Italy and Uruguay was England. Group D, which also features lowly Costa Rica, is one of two “Groups of Death” in the 2014 World Cup. The other is Group G, which is toplined by Germany, but also includes Portugal, Ghana and the United States. Valcke’s France, meanwhile, wound up in Group E, widely derided as the worst in the competition, with overrated Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras, which was whipped 5-0 by Brazil last month in Miami. Here is a full breakdown of the eight groups announced Friday: GROUP A Who moves on Brazil, Mexico Who goes home early Croatia, Cameroon The hosts are the clear favourites in the first group. Mexico beat La Selecao in the 2012 Olympic final, but th ...
The winners of the 2014 FIFA World Cup will receive $35million (USD) in prize money, the governing body announced on Thursday. Total contributions for the 32 participants in the tournament have increased by 37 per cent from 2010, with the champions poised to pocket $5million more than Spain did following their victory in South Africa. The rise in prize money - announced by FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke following a meeting of the Executive Committee ahead of the World Cup draw in Brazil on Friday - will see a total of $576million paid out to the teams, compared to $420million at the previous World Cup. The runners-up will receive $25million, with the sides who finish third and fourth set to pocket $22million and $20million respectively. Quarter-finalli sts will collect $14million each, while round of 16 participants will be handed $9million. Sides eliminated in the group stage will earn $8million, with every team receiving a payment of $1.5million for preparation costs. Is ur country among?.# muhak ...
The overall prize money for the tournament will rise to approximately $560.0 million (R5.6 Billion), around $140m (R1.4 Billion) more than the $420m (R4.2 billion) available in South Africa 2010, when $30m (R300m) was on offer to the winners. It means the winners of next year's tournament in Brazil will pick up around $40m (R400m). "Also, there will be around $70 million (R700m) available to the clubs who provide players for the teams in the World Cup, higher than last time as well."- Jerome Valcke

**Futball follow up** Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa confirms his intention to play for Spain rather than Brazil, the country of his birth, according to the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). In a statement the RFEF says the player has stated "his desire to be at the disposition of the Spanish national team manager Vicente del Bosque" in a signed letter addressed to Julio Cesar Avelleda, secretary general of the Brazilian Football Confederation. "Therefore, Diego Costa can play with Spain in the upcoming games in November, if he is selected by the national team manager," the statement adds. FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke and Russia's Sports Minister pours cold water on plans from UEFA president Michel Platini to enlarge the World Cup to 40 teams. European football head Platini proposed for an extra eight teams to join the World Cup from the Russia 2018 tournament onwards. "Never say never, but it's unlikely," said Valcke, who is No. 2 to FIFA president Sepp Blatter, during a visit to the futur ...
Fifa president Sepp Blatter says football's world governing body will "have failed" if it does not adopt a zero tolerance approach to racism. Uefa opened a disciplinary case against CSKA Moscow this week after Manchester City's Yaya Toure complained of being racially abused by their fans. Blatter said: "If we are not able to go zero tolerance, we have failed." Fifa's Jerome Valcke will meet Russia's World Cup 2018 officials in the next 48 hours to discuss the issue. A new anti-racism resolution passed by Fifa in May means teams can now be forced to play matches behind closed doors as punishment for incidents of racism, with stiffer penalties in place for repeat offenders. "In the first case there should be a warning, in a second case sanctions, disciplinary sanctions or to play without spectators," said Blatter, 77, who has been Fifa's president since 1998. "But the third one is that you have to deduct points or expel a team from a competition. "The [Fifa] congress has said we have to go zero tolerance. T ...
