Should Fifa’s presidency election be postponed?

Fifa president Sepp Blatter is set to win a fourth term in office as an election delay now appears unlikely.

Prince William had backed calls for the vote to be postponed following allegations of corruption.

But the English Football Association and its Scottish counterparts have struggled to find widespread support for their proposal.

Blatter is the only candidate for the Fifa presidency as rival Mohammed bin Hammam is suspended.

A spokesman for Prince William said: “The Duke of Cambridge, as FA President, has been kept informed of the FA’s proposals and is fully supportive of the Chairman and the initiatives the FA has recommended.

“He considers the transparency of the international governing body to be integral to the good governance of the game.”

Despite the support from Prince William, the FA and SFA bid to suspend the election looks unlikely to garner the number of votes - 75% of the 208 nations in Fifa - required to change the agenda.
