Abstract

The corruption scandal currently engulfing football’s international governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), and the recent allegations of bribery in order to host the 2006 World Cup in Germany
raise a number of issues. Allegations in recent years of bribery, embezzlement, misappropriation, moneylaundering, vote rigging and other abuses of power within several international sports federations demand that this type of misconduct be investigated and prosecuted. In the absence of a comparable international integrity oversight body similar to the World AntiDoping Agency (WADA), it is timely to examine the applicability and potential usefulness of existing international instruments.
