Swiss police on Wednesday searched UEFA’s headquarters for contracts linked to a Champions League television rights deal revealed in the so-called “Panama Papers”, which involves FIFA’s new president Gianni Infantino.

“UEFA can confirm that today we received a visit from the office of the Swiss Federal Police acting under a warrant,” the European football confederation said in a statement sent to AFP.

It added that police requested “sight of the contracts between UEFA and Cross Trading (and) Teleamazonas,” two of the companies involved in the sale of broadcast rights in Ecuador for the 2006 to 2009 Champions League finals.

Infantino was the head of UEFA’s legal department at the time and signed the contracts.
