Will football must move away from Europe

Runeme – Sepp Blatter said Friday that more moves are needed to export football away from Europe, as he gears up for a battle over Europe’s World Cup places and his own reelection, more football news on

“The world is no longer Eurocentric. In my 40 years at FIFA I have regarded it as my most important task to lead football out of Europe into the whole world,” Blatter said.

“We have succeeded but the process is not yet at an end,” he added in a column in the FIFA magazine The Weekly.

He made no specific proposals. But throughout his time as FIFA president, Blatter has encouraged Africa and other continents to press for more World Cup places.

The latest comments come however after the 79-year-old Blatter had an awkward time at the UEFA Congress on Tuesday, having to watch his three rivals for the FIFA presidency in May attack his record. UEFA president Michel Platini also made new calls for change at the world body.

On top, UEFA made clear that it will be pressing for an extra place at the 2018 World Cup when FIFA’s executive decides the allocation, the day after the FIFA presidential vote on May 29.

Platini indicated at the Vienna congress on Tuesday that he believes Blatter is linking the two.

Platini told a small group of reporters after the congress that the number of European places at the 2018 World Cup is “quite rightly” a prime concern for national federations.

“You know that Blatter will organise an executive committee the day after the Congress … and he put on the agenda ‘slots of the World Cup’ He is playing with that.”

Europe believes it deserves at least one extra slot as it has 19 of the top 31 teams in the FIFA rankings.

At the 1998 World Cup, there were 15 European teams but in Brazil last year the number had dropped to 13. If the same system is kept for Russia 2018, Europe would have 14 representatives, 13 through qualifiers and Russia as hosts.

“If they don’t want Europe any more they have to say so,” the UEFA leader declared.

Other federations, particularly Africa and Asia, are also pressing for extra places however.

Blatter, who is favourite to win a fifth term, acknowledged the weight of UEFA’s 54 national associations in FIFA’s membership, adding that “their sporting and political significance is important.”

“However we must not forget that football’s global success is based on the vast reserves of talent and economic resources drawn from Africa, Asia, North and South America and Oceania.”

Thwart scammers and coin sellers, EA Sports hopes

FIFA 15 News – FIFA 15 explains changes to thwart scammers and coin sellers in Ultimate Team. Still more are coming to the game’s “Transfer Market,” where soccer players are traded for the game’s virtual currency. More news about FIFA 15 on

Ultimate Team, an enormously popular card-collection/management mode in the FIFA series that’s also enormously popular with scammers and phishers, imposed price-range limits on players last week and ended access to the Transfer Market for two companion apps back in February.

Both steps were meant to thwart online thieves and reduce their influence over Ultimate Team’s virtual economy. Fair-playing users, however, responded with enough questions as to why the steps were taken that EA Sports today recapped what this was all about, and what’s coming next.

Price ranges set a floor and ceiling on a card’s sale price. Basically, with so much fraudulent currency dumped on the market by scammers, prices for desirable players had inflated well out of reach of those playing the game legitimately.

A minimum price, however, is necessary to battle the fraudulent exchange of coins. EA Sports forbids coin sales, and the only way to obtain them is through the game itself, but coin sellers have still found ways to pull off exchanges through distorted Transfer Market sales. Coin sellers often use players with listed values much lower than their maximum range to transfer coins.
