The US Senate held a panel hearing today in Washington DC to discuss corruption in international soccer.
The Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety, Insurance and Data Security held the hearing on FIFA, soccer’s international governing authority, which has faced recent criticism for human-rights abuses ahead of the 2022 men’s World Cup and is under federal investigation for racketeering conspiracy and corruption.
Veteran freelance journalist Andrew Jennings and Dan Flynn, the CEO and secretary general of the U.S. Soccer Federation, are among the witnesses who testified.
While the hearing ran for two hours, it’s thoroughly recommended viewing particularly given the reactions from Jennings and Flynn, who had differing views. Also, pay close attention to Flynn’s obvious discomfort and squirming in his seat when asked the tough questions by the US politicians.
