The executive committee of global soccer body, FIFA, on Wednesday urged its member associations to approve proposed reforms in a vote on Friday.
The body has been mired in the worst corruption scandal in its history.
“The eyes of the world are on us this week after one of the most challenging times in our history,’’ acting FIFA President Issa Hayatou said after the committee met.
FIFA is holding a special congress in Zurich on February 26 to elect a new president.
The body will then pass a set of reforms, with the aim of repairing its reputation after a series of corruption and ethics scandals.
