Ex-FIFA VP Jack Warner questions why U.S. Soccer absolved in Garcia report

Raf Honigstein reveals his thoughts on the Garcia report that examined allegations of corruption in the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has told The Times that the Garcia report into corruption around the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids is "not even worth the paper it has been written on" and questioned why U.S. Soccer was absolved after he and Sepp Blatter met President Barack Obama.

The report, produced by American lawyer Michael J. Garcia in 2014 but only released in full this week, said the England 2018 World Cup bid team was found to have "accommodated or at least attempted to satisfy the...

FIFA's Garcia report: Bribes, paintings and gifts galore in World Cup bids

Raf Honigstein reveals his thoughts on the Garcia report that examined allegations of corruption in the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The Garcia report, released in full by by FIFA on Tuesday, might not have contained any sensational allegations that could endanger Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022, but it does shed light on the chronic culture of corruption and cronyism that afflicted the race to secure the right to host the two tournaments.

From demands for lavish hotels to jobs for friends, ESPN FC takes a detailed look at some of the brazen details documented by Garcia, which tell a bigger picture of how world football's governing...

WADA fears Russia football doping 'cover-up' over 155 test samples

Russia's national team could be so much better if their league was stronger.
Russia's 2014 World Cup squad is under investigation by FIFA, according to a report

World-Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) investigator Richard McLaren has told German TV network ARD that 155 samples related to Russian footballers have been reported to FIFA, saying he believed those samples were part of a doping cover-up.

McLaren said he believed this could be part of a cover-up separate to that revealed in the report that led to the banning of Russian athletes from the Olympic Games in Brazil.

"There are 155 samples that were seized by WADA and are awaiting analysis. We have reported...

FFA won't repeat 'mistakes of the past' after FIFA's damning Garcia report

Raf Honigstein reveals his thoughts on the Garcia report that examined allegations of corruption in the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Australian soccer bosses say they won't make the same mistakes again after a report detailed evidence of the nation making improper payments in its failed 2022 World Cup bid.

A fortnight after Australia announced its intent to bid for the 2023 Women's World Cup, the report found evidence suggested the nation made improper payments to influence the vote of a FIFA member.

The report by FIFA ethics investigator Michael Garcia scrutinises, in part, Australia's failed bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

Garcia report doesn't contain smoking gun, but FIFA clean-up has just begun

Raf Honigstein reveals his thoughts on the Garcia report that examined allegations of corruption in the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Gab Marcotti reports from Moscow on the atmosphere at the Confederations Cup and Russia's preparations for the 2018 World Cup.

Even before Michael J. Garcia, a former U.S. attorney and FIFA's chief ethics investigator into the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids, had submitted his report to FIFA in 2014, there were rumors that there was no "smoking gun." Not of the kind that would see the World Cup taken away from the respective bid-winners, Russia and Qatar.

Hans-Joachim Eckert, the head of the adjudicatory branch of FIFA's Ethics Committee, decided in September 2014 that the Garcia report would not be published in full for "legal...
