Bribes are standard practice

The former Vice President of FIFA, Jeffrey Webb, says: FIFA is corrupt.

Bribes are standard practice

“I believed that such offers were common in this business.”
“Bribes were standard practice in FIFA.”
“I abused my position to obtain bribes and kickbacks for my personal benefit.”
This is not the words of a stooge for the mafia, but quotes of Jeffrey Webb, former Vice President of FIFA and President of Concacaf.
The quotations from Jeffrey Webb retrieved from his conversations with an US judge, when he pleaded guilty to racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies in the big FIFA corruption scandal involving at least 40 officials and marketing executives.
Jeffrey Webb confessed to receiving bribes for the sale of commercial rights for 2018 and 2022 World Cup qualifying matches – and the Copa America Centenario tournament.
FBI investigates wire fraud, money laundering and racketeering in FIFA. The investigation mostly revolved around collusion between officials of continental football bodies Conmebol (South America) and Concacaf (Caribbean, Central and North America), and sports marketing executives. The sports marketing executives were holders of media and marketing rights for high-profile international competitions including the Americas’ World Cup qualifying tournaments, and showpiece tournaments Concacaf Gold Cup and Copa America.
Fifteen individuals have pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with US prosecutors in exchange for a possible reduction in sentence.
