The morning session was  set to be highlighted by the presentation of the results of FIFA’s work in 2014, approval of the budget for 2016 and an update on strategic and sports-political matters, as well as on decisions passed at the 2014 Congress in Sao Paulo, Brazil – with considerations on such pressing issues as Third-Party Ownership and the fight against discrimination and racism.

Throughout the afternoon, the legislative body will focus on the installation of the vice-presidents and members of the Executive Committee, as well as the process for the election of the FIFA President. A press conference will be held at the Home of FIFA on Saturday 30 May at 11.30am local time, after the 65th FIFA Congress is officially closed and this, too, will be streamed live on FIFA.com.
