FFA backs Prince Ali manifesto for FIFA change

Official release from Football Federation Australia

FFA Chairman Mr Frank Lowy AC arrived in Zurich, Switzerland, on Thursday evening (Australian time) to attend the 2015 FIFA Congress.

The situation remains volatile amid suggestions that the FIFA Congress or Presidential election, or both, could be postponed. The outcome of this speculation is expected to become clearer overnight.

Speaking in Zurich after a round of meetings, Frank Lowy said: "FFA believes that profound change within FIFA is needed as soon as possible to address issues of governance and transparency.

"This belief will be reflected when Australia casts its vote in the Presidential election, should it proceed on Friday in Zurich.

"The Board of FFA has reviewed the manifesto for change proposed by Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein and believes it provides the basis for a fresh start for FIFA."
