FIFA’s new reform committee will hold its first meeting in the Swiss capital of Berne on September 2, world football’s governing body said yesterday.

The committee was set up as part of FIFA’s response to US authorities indicting nine soccer officials and five sports marketing executives.

The committee includes two representatives from each of the regional soccer confederations along with two representatives of FIFA’s commercial partners, which have yet to be named.

The body is likely to consider a series of reform proposals from FIFA’s Audit and Compliance chairman Domenico Scala, who last month outlined to the executive committee a series of plans for changing the governance of the scandal-hit organization.
