Gianni Infantino, the current president of Fifa, will run unopposed for re-election third term as head of world football’s governing body next year.

In February 2016, the 52-year-old Swiss-Italian took over as the head of football’s governing body after Sepp Blatter retired. He was re-elected in 2019.

Fifa said that “following the call for election” in March 2022, its member associations had only proposed Infantino as a candidate.

He will be re-elected at the 73rd Fifa Congress in Kigali, Rwanda on 16 March.

Blatter presided over Fifa for 17 years before being expelled due to corruption in 2015.
