Gianni Infantino quotes

We are now in the process of defining the bid requirements. In the world there are certainly many countries with travel bans, visa requirements and so on and so forth. What is obvious is that when it comes to the World Cup, like the Olympic Games ... any team, including the supporters and officials of that team who have qualified, need to have access to the country. Otherwise there is no World Cup. The requirements will be clear. Then each country can make up their decision whether they want to bid or not. It's nothing to do with the U.S. or not the U.S., it's a general sporting criteria.feedback

I'm very happy that there is testing across the world that we can learn from so that when we apply it in English competitions we know that it is going to work.

The PGMOL [Professional Game Match Officials Limited] are working hard at it. I would expect to see video assistant referees from the third round of the FA Cup for the coming season. That is our aim. I'm very confident. The signs are encouraging.feedback

Vars are positive because they will allow that the right decision is taken in a game-changing circumstance. It prevents the referee from making a clear mistake in an occasion where he wouldn't have seen it. It happens. It's happened in the last 150 years.

Financially, the 48-team format is the most appealing or successful simply because the sporting element is prevailing and every match is important. The decision should not be financially driven, neither in terms of revenue or costs ... but the driver should really be the development of football and boosting football all over the world.feedback

This is a time for pain and suffering, not for talking. No words can diminish the suffering.feedback

We are so sorry to hear about the airplane crash in Colombia, it is shocking and tragic news. At this difficult time our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.feedback

I want to make sure we have systems in place where we can assist and monitor all associations on a regular basis so we are not taken by surprise by a given country.feedback

The defendants abused the positions of trust they held. The monies they pocketed belonged to football.feedback

Today we have taken a really historic decision for football. FIFA and IFAB are now leading the debate and not stopping it.

This is a big change and a big test we are doing here. We have to be very careful when it comes to protecting the game of football.feedback
