FFA Media Release: 2022 FIFA World Cup bid
Football Federation Australia has acted in accordance with FIFA guidelines in respect to its bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, CEO Ben Buckley said today.
"Furthermore our financial records and reporting for the World Cup Bid are in accordance with our World Cup Bid funding agreement and independently audited. Our regular progress reports under this agreement have been transparent and any suggestion otherwise is mischievous and unhelpful," Buckley said.
"It is important to remind everyone that a FIFA World Cup brings untold benefits and excitement to the host country as currently evidence in South Africa and that is the reason FFA is engaged in a competitive bidding process for the world's biggest sporting contest."
