27 May 2015 will probably remain a turning point in the world of football. The FBI indicted nine FIFA officials and five corporate executives for corruption and a racketeering conspiracy.
However, were all these scandals not a necessary evil for the football business to enter a more transparent era?
The question of an independent and impartial football justice is also a major debate in current affairs. This issue of Football Legal devotes its Special Report to it.
The football stakeholders must now discuss what reforms must be taken to ensure that a new leaf is turned.
The 6th International Congress on Football Law in Madrid was already a great opportunity to discuss this important matter.
On top of that, a new FIFA President will be elected on 26 February 2016. He will have the heavy responsibility of implementing the right reforms for football.
