FIFA says current President Sepp Blatter and Qatari challenger Mohamed Bin Hammam are the only candidates for the presidential election June 1.
The deadline for nominations expired at midnight Friday.
The 75-year-old Blatter, head of FIFA for the past 13 years, is seeking a fourth four-year term, while Bin Hammam, the Asian Football Confederation president, is standing for the first time.
There are 208 FIFA voters for this contest and the Qatari Bin Hammam, who played an influential role in securing the 2022 World Cup for his home nation, rates his chances of becoming the the ninth president of FIFA and the first from Asia as “50-50”.
American journalist Grant Wahl, who announced in February that he intended to stand for presidency as a “people’s candidate”, failed to get the written support of one national football association, which candidates must have.
