The demise of former FIFA president Sepp Blatter was one which gripped the entire world of football and threatened to tarnish the integrity of the sport.

The fallout of the Qatar World Cup led to long term bans from football for both Blatter and former UEFA president Michael Platini. The pair were once regarded as the most powerful figures in world football and denied the charges against them.

During the trailer, FIFA is described as acting like a “criminal organisation” and highlights some of the crimes they were accused of such as “money laundering and bribery.”

From power struggles to global politics, FIFA Uncovered describes the decision to give the World Cup to Qatar as the “biggest sports corruption scandal of all time.”

On 2 December 2010, Qatar surprisingly won the bid to host the 2022 World Cup. In doing so they became the first ever arabic country to host the competition since it was founded in 1930.

Qatar had never previously qualified for the World Cup and is not a country that was renowned for its football heritage. Then FIFA president Blatter revealed that he had decided to take football “to new lands” in an attempt to “develop” the sport.

Allegations of vote buying were made, but an independent investigation commissioned by FIFA found no evidence of corruption whereas Qatar denied allegations of buying delegate votes. An investigation from French authorities is still ongoing while US officials also accused three FIFA officials of receiving payment in 2020.

Blatter and Platini also faced a trial in July 2022 following accusations of fraud. The trial was in relation to a payment of 2m Swiss francs that was made by Blatter to Platini in 2011.

The pair were found not guilty and prior to the verdict Blatter said: “I am not innocent in my life but in this case I am innocent.”
