No explanation given for possible change of venue.

Fifa says it will discuss a possible new venue and date for an executive committee meeting originally scheduled for Japan in December.

Seven of the governing body’s officials were arrested in Zurich on 27 May on corruption charges by United States authorities and face extradition.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter is not among those who have been indicted. But the 79-year-old, who as a Swiss national cannot be cannot be extradited from his homeland, has been reluctant to leave the country since the multiple arrests of Fifa officials ahead of the presidential election.

Since the corruption charges Blatter’s only official trip abroad has been to Russia for the World Cup qualifying draw in St Petersburg in late July.

Fifa’s executive committee meets in Zurich on Thursday and Friday and the final item on the agenda, published, was listed as “decision on the date and place of the next meeting”.

A Fifa spokeswoman confirmed the matter was under review and gave no reason for the discussion.

Blatter won a fifth consecutive Fifa presidential election on 29 May but amid the ongoing corruption allegations, the Swiss announced his intention to renounce his mandate, just three days later.

He will stand down at a Fifa extraordinary congress on 26 February.

Fifa also confirmed that Brazilian executive committee member Marco Polo del Nero had failed to attend a meeting in Zurich on Monday of the Olympic Football tournaments organising committee, which he chairs.

Del Nero, president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), also missed the May Congress in Zurich, leaving Switzerland shortly after his predecessor Jose Maria Marin was among the seven people arrested. There have been calls for him to step down.
