Blatter in last fight against FIFA ban

Arguments at CAS are expected to last just one day, although a decision may take several weeks. 

The hearing marks the latest legal battle in a series of intertwined scandals that began in May of last year, when the US Justice Department unsealed a raft of corruption indictments against top FIFA officials.

Prosecutors in New York have since indicted 40 football and sports marketing executives over allegedly receiving tens of millions of bribes and kickbacks. 

Some of the most powerful people in the game have fallen, including FIFA’s long-serving secretary general Jerome Valcke who like Blatter is facing a criminal investigation in Switzerland.
