Prince William and David Cameron named in FIFA corruption scandal

Prince William and former UK prime minister David Cameron have been implicated in a FIFA corruption scandal, according to an investigation.

Cameron and Prince William were present at a meeting between England football officials and their South Korean counterparts, at which illegal vote-swapping was allegedly discussed.

Cameron allegedly asked South Korean delegate Chung Mong-Joon to support England’s bid for the 2018 World Cup.

In exchange, England was asked to vote for a Korean bid in 2022.

Such a deal would be considered against FIFA rules on vote-swapping and collusion.

The revelation was made in a 400-page report into the nefarious practices by football officials in awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar.

The Garcia Report, named for its author Michael Garcia, detailed multiple acts of corruption and misdeeds from multiple different countries bidding for the rights to hold the football World Cup.

The internal report into FIFA corruption has implicated Football Federation Australia (FFA) in improper practices in a bid to influence executives deciding on where to hold the 2022 World Cup.

The bombshell Garcia report released overnight has alleged the FFA sent a half-million-dollar cheque to build a football stadium in Trinidad with the express purpose of influencing the vote of now-ousted FIFA vice president Jack Warner.

“The record provides significant evidence that the AU$500,000 was paid with the intention of influencing Mr Warner’s World Cup vote,” the report reads.

“Australia’s bid team perceived the payment as a benefit for Mr Warner, as did Mr Warner himself.”

The FFA would go on to bankroll Trinidad and Tobago’s Under 20s trip to Cyprus in 2009 at Warner’s request.

“I will make sure there is a quid pro quo, believe me,” FFA consultant Peter Hargitay wrote in an email to former FFA CEO Ben Buckley, the report claims.

“Please advise and I take it further. I can pick up costs and invoice back as ‘marketing costs’.”

In a statement made this afternoon, the FFA said it had provided “full and valuable co-operation” into the inquiry.

“FFA reiterates that the financial management of the bid was routinely reported to Government and reviewed by independent external auditors,” the statement read.

“Its payment to CONCACAF was also investigated by the Australian Federal Police which found that no Commonwealth offence was identified.

“FFA has said repeatedly that the bid process for 2018 and 2022 was deeply flawed and that mistakes were made by the Australian bid team.”

The report also alleged the FFA tried to redirect Australian foreign aid money towards African countries with prominent FIFA officials.
