Gianni Infantino Re-Elected For Second Term As FIFA President
Gianni Infantino has been re-elected as FIFA president.
He was re-elected for a second term, at the Congress of world football’s governing body in Paris on Wednesday.
Infantino’s second term will run until 2023.
FIFA’s 211 member federation retained him without a vote, because he was the only candidate.
Infantino, a 49-year-old Swiss lawyer, was first elected in February 2016 to complete the term of Sepp Blatter.
Blatter was forced out of office following corruption investigations, and is now serving a six-year ban for financial misconduct.
