“No other candidature has been submitted,” the statement said.

Gianni Infantino ascended to the post of FIFA President after winning the election in 2016 for a period of three years. FIFA president Gianni Infantino is getting four more years in charge of soccer’s governing body after no candidate stepped up to challenge him.

Infantino’s upcoming re-election to the $3 million-per-year job may not be his final term in office. FIFA rules allow him to run again to stay in power for another World Cup cycle until 2031. A quirk of FIFA’s statutes means the first three years of Infantino’s presidency — when he completed an unfinished term started by Blatter — does not count against the 12-year limit agreed to in reforms passed during a prolonged corruption crisis before his first election.

Infantino’s current term in office, which started in June 2019, saw FIFA dip into its $2 billion-plus reserves and oversee emergency legal measures to help stabilize soccer through the COVID-19 pandemic. The global health crisis almost entirely shut down World Cup qualifying games in 2020. The final tournament in Qatar starts on Sunday.

Infantino has shored up his voting base in the 54-member Confederation of African Football, which has been led since March 2021 by his close ally, South African mining magnate Patrice Motsepe. The 2026 World Cup in North America, the first with 48 teams instead of 32, will hugely raise the tournament records for attendance and revenue for FIFA, which is on track to earn nearly $7 billion in its four-year commercial cycle tied to the World Cup in Qatar.

A couple of days ago FIFA President Gianni Infantino has made a direct plea to world leaders gathered in Indonesia for the 17th Group of Twenty (G20) summit to call for ceasefire during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and to begin dialogue as a first step to bring the conflict in Russia and Ukraine to an end.

Addressing assembled heads of state at the intergovernmental forum, he said: “Football is a force for good. We are not naïve to believe that football can solve the world’s problems.”

“We know that our main focus as a sports organisation is and should be sports, but because Football Unites the World, this particular FIFA World Cup, with five billion people watching it, can be a trigger for a positive gesture, for a sign or a message of hope.”
