Top FIFA Sponsors Call For Blatter Resignation

Though FIFA president Sepp Blatter announced in May amid corruption charges that he will resign in February 2016, FIFA’s top sponsors—Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Visa, and McDonald’s—have released statements calling for his immediate resignation, though Blatter has refused to step down. What do you think?

“Sepp’s just calling their bluff. If they don’t continue to sponsor the World Cup no one will know about their brands.”

Tommy Brandis • Creditor

“Well, it probably takes at least a few months to fully corrupt your successor.”

Hugh Larkin • Pretzel Braider

“FIFA must uphold their standard of acting in corporate sponsors’ best interests.”

Emma Lipman • Chief Actuary
