The Chairmen of any FIFA Sponsor

Over the last decade, there have been a string of accusations of corruption, arrests, lies and misrepresentations made against The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). These accusations stem from a variety of highly-qualified and independent investigative journalists who have linked FIFA leadership with rapaciousness, corruption, bribery, and alleged vote-rigging pursuant to the election of FIFA President Sepp Blatter and the organization's decision to simultaneously award the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar, respectively.

These allegations culminated with the indictments of nine high-ranking FIFA officials and five corporate executives by the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice on charges including racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering.

On 27 May 2015, several of these officials were taken into custody for questioning by Swiss authorities, who were launching a simultaneous, but separate criminal investigation into how the organization awarded the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Those among these officials who were also indicted in the U.S. are expected to be extradited to face charges there as well.

We the undersigned call on ALL the Sponsors of FIFA (Adidas, Coca-Cola, Gazprom, Hyundai & Kia Motors, Macdonalds, Visa and Budweiser) to withdraw their sponsorship until such time as:

1. FIFA has installed through and open and transparent election-process, a new President and Council, and

2. There is an agreed methodology whereby the awarding of the FIFA World Cup to Host Nations is an honest and open process.
