The planned changes include improving the role of women in the organisation that’s dominated by men and limiting the top official roles and presidency to three, four-year terms.
In Zurich on 26 February, the proposals from the reform committee will be presented to FIFA congress for statutory approval.
Issa Hayatou, FIFA’s acting president, said: “These reforms are moving FIFA towards improved governance, greater transparency and more accountability.
“They mark a milestone on our path towards restoring FIFA’s credibility as a modern, trusted and professional sports organisation. This signals the beginning of a culture shift at FIFA.”
The other areas that are being considered for reform include a smaller role for the executive committee. The finance decisions will be made by the development, finance and governance committees, whose work will be continually assessed by its compliance and audience committee.
The decision has also been made to defer whether the amount of teams in the World Cup should be increased from 32 to 40.
Other proposed moves include comprehensive and compulsory integrity checks for every member of the standing committee by an independent FIFA review committee. A new ‘football stakeholders committee’ will be introduced that includes clubs, leagues and players.
This announcement came on the same day that Swiss police arrested two vice-presidents who were in attendance at the Zurich meeting, on suspicion of pocketing millions in bribes over TV rights.
The proposals will be voted on in February at the congress when the suspended FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, will be substituted.
