Sepp Blatter to Resign, Reforming FIFA Begins

At a remarkable FIFA press conference just concluded Sepp Blatter announced that he will resign from FIFA, which will take effect upon the election of his successor, most likely to occur sometime January-March, 2016.

There will be much needed discussion of reforms. Here in PDF is a chapter that I wrote earlier this year summarizing some of the most prominent reform proposals put forward by Transparency International, governance expert Mark Pieth and FIFA's own internal reform committee. See the appendix for the full list.

Blatter is on his way out, that marks an ending. The task of reforming FIFA however has only just begun.
