  6. 6.  FIFA Members Accused of Taking Bribes ◦ 2 members were caught telling a reporter that they would take money for their vote in where the 2018 and 2022 World Cup would be held. ◦ Once this began, everyone began pointing the finger at others. ◦ Many members were taking bribes and trading votes.

  10. 10.  Hammam and Warner were both suspended while the investigations were conducted Recently, both have been charged with bribery.
  11. 11.  I feel that the crisis could not have been prevented. Although ethical regulations were set for committee members, it is difficult to monitor what goes on behind closed doors. Many of the accusations that were made about individual members were false, and some of them were not supported by enough evidence to convict.
  12. 12.  With the of the nature of this crisis, I feel that Fédération Internationale de Football Association did a great job responding to the crisis. The organization leaders immediately addressed the issued and explained to the public through a news release on the first day. It gave the organization a chance to gain control before the media. Addressing it so quickly, and the constant updates and information to the public and media also helped show the transparency of the organization. I feel that the transparency is important to build and maintain trust with the stakeholders around the organization. Also, the quick response by FIFA to investigate the allegations was a smart decision.
  13. 13.  Overall, the crisis that FIFA faced was inevitable. However, the organization took the necessary steps in a timely manner, and continues to investigate and update media and the publics. The media has responded in a neutral stance, and it seems that FIFA is working with the media to best represent the organization.
