Former Manchester United chief executive David Gill has been put forward for the FIFA vice-presidency by the Football Association.
The 57-year old vice-chairman of the FA, who is on UEFA's Executive Committee, is among the candidates to be chosen as FIFA's next British vice-president.
Northern Ireland's Jim Boyce currently holds the British position on FIFA's Executive Committee but Gill could be in line to replace him when the vote takes place in March next year.
Gill said on the FA's official website: "This is a decision I have been thinking about for some time.
"Although I had initially wanted to focus on developing my relatively new role within UEFA, I believe there is an opportunity, if elected, to use the FIFA position to make a real difference while complementing that ongoing work.
"Having sounded out many people across the game including fellow board members at Manchester United, The FA and UEFA, I would hope to make a positive contribution and use my candidacy to drive a debate for continued reform."
Gill, who left his post at Old Trafford last summer, will go up against candidates from the Scottish FA, Welsh FA and Northern Irish FA.
