OFC backs Infantino for re-election

The Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) has given its backing to Gianni Infantino’s re-election as president of Fifa, the sport’s global governing body.

Infantino, who has served as Fifa president since February 2016, will be seeking a full four-year term at a vote in Paris on June 5.

So far there have been no candidates to challenge Infantino’s re-election and the 48-year-old has received the unanimous support of the OFC’s executive committee, which comprises 11 member federation presidents in New Zealand and the Pacific islands.

Individuals have until February 5 to declare their candidacy to run alongside Infantino in the presidential race.
