Germany - Fifa is likely to withdraw a $21.2 million financing towards the building of a new stadium in its host city of Zurich because of plans to include standing areas for fans.
"In respect to the planned stadium construction in Zurich, that means that if the plans are maintained to reserve some places for standing fans, Fifa must rethink its commitment to the promised 20 million Swiss francs.
"Fifa is convinced, that all-seater stadiums guarantee more comfort and, above all, more safety. Therefore, Fifa argue for stadiums which exclusively for seated fans."
