Fifa passes package of reforms

Update : 26 Feb 2016, 11:03 AM

Fifa has passed a wide-ranging package of reforms at an extraordinary congress in Zurich.

They include limits on a president's term and the disclosure of salaries as football's world governing body seeks to recover from a corruption crisis.

"There's an opportunity for Fifa to start again," Football Association chairman Greg Dyke said on Thursday.

Later on Friday Fifa will elect a new president to replace Sepp Blatter, who held the position since 1998.

The five candidates are Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa, Gianni Infantino, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Tokyo Sexwale and Jerome Champagne.

The election process is expected to begin at 12:00 GMT, but several rounds of voting may be required before a winner is known.

The new reforms:

Disclosure of salaries Separation of political and managerial functions New Fifa council Promotion of women in football Human rights enshrined
