FIFA re-elects Gianni Infantino as president for another 4 year term.

Gianni Infantino has been re-elected as president of football’s world governing body Fifa for a second term.

The Swiss-Italian, 49, was re-elected until 2023 without opposition at Fifa’s annual congress in Paris.

He succeeded Sepp Blatter in 2016 and has increased the number of teams at the 2026 World Cup and proposed key changes to the Club World Cup.

Ex-president Blatter was in charge for 17 years until he was banned amid a corruption scandal in 2015.

Former Uefa secretary general Infantino was behind the expansion of the World Cup from 32 teams to 48 for the 2026 tournament, which will be held in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Plans to bring the expansion forward to the 2022 World Cup were howeverabandoned last month.

In March, Fifa approved Infantino’s plans for a 24-team Club World Cup starting in 2021, despite top European clubs saying they would boycott the tournament.
