MOSCOW | The Latest: Infantino to stand again for FIFA presidency
MOSCOW — The Latest at the World Cup, including the FIFA Congress vote for the 2026 hosting rights, (all times local):
FIFA president Gianni Infantino will stand for re-election in June next year.
Infantino confirmed his expected candidacy in a speech about leadership, minutes after FIFA member federations voted for the United States, Canada and Mexico to host the 2026 world Cup.
The 134-65 vote over Morocco’s bid will help secure FIFA’s financial future, with the North American bid likely securing billions of dollars in extra revenue.
