Since its last congress on May 28 last, FIFA has emerged as a totally corrupt organization.
Rigged elections, World Cup competitions bought, bribes, arrests… the news of recent months has brought world football’s leading body to the ground.
Sepp Blatter, FIFA president for over 17 years was even forced to resign. Unprecedented in the history of football.
At a moment when the organization is rocked almost every day by a host of intrigues and scandals, this documentary reveals how a small, non-profit association founded in 1904 was able to transform itself over the years into a sprawling financial empire.
From Paris, to Washington, Rio de Janeiro, Yaoundé, Zurich and London, the investigation reveals the hidden face of the institution of world football: a corrupt multinational, which over the years has turned over billions of dollars.
