Jerome Valcke Sacked By FIFA

Wed 13th Jan 2016 | FIFA

Jerome Valcke, the former Secretary General has been sacked by FIFA.

Valcke, had been released from his duties in September 2015 whilst a formal investigation by the FIFA Ethics Committee was carried out following a series of allegations involving the sale of tickets for the 2014 World Cup.

A statement released by FIFA read:

“The FIFA Emergency Committee decided, on 9 January 2016, to dismiss Jérôme Valcke from the position of FIFA Secretary General with immediate effect. Jérôme Valcke is therefore no longer the Secretary General of FIFA.

“The employment relationship between FIFA and Jérôme Valcke has also been terminated.

“Jérôme Valcke was provisionally released from his duties as Secretary General on 17 September 2015, and on 7 January 2016, formal adjudicatory proceedings were opened against him by the adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert.

“The provisional suspension imposed on Jérôme Valcke on 8 October 2015 and extended on 6 January 2016 continues to be valid. 

“The duties of the Secretary General will continue to be assumed by the Acting Secretary General, Dr Markus Kattner.”
