FIFA take control of Uruguayan FA after election crisis

FIFA has intervened to take control of Uruguayan football on Tuesday in a bid to ensure free and fair elections can be held for the association's president, the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) said.

In a letter to the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) published widely by local media and confirmed by CONMEBOL, the game's governing body said it would take over the day-to-day running of the AUF.

It also pledged to revise the association's statutes and adjust them to comply with those of CONMEBOL and FIFA, and when that process was complete, hold an election for president.

"The mandate of the regularisation committee will run until Feb 28, 2019," the letter said.

"The regularisation committee will act as an electoral commission whose decision will be firm."

Neither FIFA nor the AUF responded to Reuters' requests for comment.

The intervention came after confusion over elections for a new president.

Wilmar Valdez unexpectedly resigned in July and the ballot to succeed him was postponed pending questions about the eligibility of the remaining candidates.

The lack of leadership means long-time coach Oscar Tabarez has not signed a new contract and his place has been filled temporarily by under-20 coach Fabian Coito.

Coito will lead the side for next month's friendly match against Mexico in the United States.

Uruguay remain the smallest nation by population, 3.5 million, to win the World Cup (1930, 1950) and reached the semi-finals in 2010.

Lowy wants last-ditch FFA compromise

The FFA had better start taking the governance of the game in Australia a bit more seriously, or this will definitely happen to them. OM

FIFA showing the power they wield for anything they don't like at the moment.

In australian terms, I don't know about FFa but the Ffsa couldn't be any worse if Kermit and Miss Piggy took over.
