FIFA election candidates to be grilled

17 December 2015, 08:30

Brussels - FIFA's presidential candidates will be questioned by European lawmakers at a campaign meeting.

The NewFIFANow pressure group says three of the five candidates - Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, Jerome Champagne and Tokyo Sexwale - are confirmed to attend on January 27 in Brussels.

A fourth candidate, Gianni Infantino, is also expected at the forum co-organised by the European Parliament Sports Intergroup, NewFIFANow says.

Organisers say they offer candidates "an opportunity to present their platform and respond to questions of concern."

It was unclear if Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa could attend.

In a campaign of few public events, the Bahraini royal was the only candidate to skip meeting FIFA voters and news conferences in Copenhagen last month.

The election to succeed Sepp Blatter is on February 26.
