BUDAPEST, Hungary — It looks like Chuck Blazer will remain a member of the FIFA executive committee.
According to the Associated Press, a formal proposal from CONCACAF to bounce the former the confederation’s general secretary from the committee cannot be heard at the FIFA Congress on Friday because the request was sent in too late.
According to FIFA regulations, there must be at least two months notice of business at its Congress.
CONCACAF countries voted at its Congress here on Wednesday to ask FIFA to remove Blazer due to allegations of financial mismanagement. He has denied those allegations.
“We’ve been alerted that the deadline has passed,” CONCACAF spokesman Scott Gleba told TropiGol.com.
However, one of the 35 members of CONCACAF can still try to force a deabte on Blazer at Friday’s Congress.
Blazer, a New York City resident, has been a member of the executive committee since 1997.
The confederation has asked the Internal Revenue Service to inspect its financial affairs.
