The Japan Football Association (JFA) is very satisfied with the appointment of President Kozo Tajima to the third FIFA board. It was hoped that Tajima’s tenure would be of great help to Japan, which dreams of hosting the FIFA World Cup in the future.
On the 1st, there was a FIFA director election at the AFC Annual General Meeting held in Manama, the capital of Bahrain. Chairman Tajima won a total of 39 votes in the election that day, and succeeded in his third term as a FIFA director representing the AFC. This is the second highest number of votes after Qatari Chairman Hamad Al Thani (40 votes). On the other hand, Chung Mong-gyu, president of the Korea Football Association, who competed in the election, received a total of 19 votes and tasted the regret of losing again. 먹튀검증
The Japanese media <Nikan Sports> explained the effect that the Japanese soccer world can get thanks to Chairman Tajima who succeeded in the third term. <Nikan Sports> said, “Unlike other Asian countries that do not have a FIFA director, you can get fast and accurate information. The FIFA board of directors makes bold decisions, but a lot of information is gathered from its member, President Tajima. Based on that accurate information, With this, the Japan Football Association will be able to respond.”
He then pointed out, “Japan tried to host the FIFA World Cup alone at the time of the 2002 FIFA World Cup bid, but it was co-hosted because of the influence of then FIFA Vice President Chung Mong-joon, a native of Korea.” He then pointed out, “Japan aims to host the FIFA World Cup by 2050. He will play a big role in this.”
Meanwhile, Chairman Tajima is expected to step down from the position of chairman of the Japan Football Association on the 3rd. It also means that now I will focus more on my activities within FIFA and AFC. The Japanese soccer giant’s influence is now expected to exert a stronger influence on the international soccer world.
