Sport: Oceania Football to back Blatter for re-election

1:35 pm on 13 May 2011

The Oceania Football Confederation is backing the incumbent, Sep Blatter, to be re-elected at next month's FIFA Presidential vote.

The OFC Executive Committee met in Auckland yesterday and Oceania President David Chung says they agreed that the current FIFA administration has had a significant impact on the development and popularity of football across the Pacific.

He says while all member associations have an independent right to decide on which candidate to vote for, President Chung says the decision highlights the unity and transparency within the confederation.
