FIFA Lavishes $584, 000 On Congress Members

World football’s governing body has revealed 548 officials, who attended last month’s annual Congress, claimed a maximum allowance of more than £650 each ($1,000) for personal expenses.

Three officials per association were entitled to claim an allowance, and FIFA has confirmed the total amount claimed was around £358,000 ($548,000).

The allowance was distributed in cash, in US dollars, from a FIFA administrative office, after officials provided proof of identity and official accreditation. The personal expenditure allowance was in addition to accommodation and travel costs, which included business class flights.
