Chuck Blazer

hat nie Fußball gespielt. Doch wenn jemand für die steigende Beliebtheit des Sports in Amerika verantwortlich ist, dann er. Blazer war Verkäufer und lernte das Spiel kennen, als er in den späten 70ern die Juniorenmannschaft seiner Söhne in Rochelle, New York, betreute.

Als Außenseiter erkannte Blazer, wie schlecht diese Sportart in den USA vermarktet wurde. Der amerikanische Fußball war tot, doch Chuck Blazer sah eine lukrative Gelegenheit in der Wiederbelebung. Er nutzte sein Können als Verkäufer und Geschäftsmann, um sich Mandate als Funktionär in verschiedenen regionalen Verbänden zu sichern. Schließlich wurde er zum Vizepräsidenten der USSF ernannt, wo er für internationale Wettbewerbe zuständig war.


ZEITZEUGEN

 
Sechs Top-Fußball-Funktionäre des internationalen Fußballverbands FIFA wurden heute wegen Korruptionsverdacht verhaftet. Die Festnahmen geschahen in einem Hotel in Zürich. Die Tatverdächtigen, unter denen sich auch der Vizepräsident des Verbands befinden soll, sind gegenwärtig in Haft und warten auf Auslieferung an die USA. Der Fall dreht sich um Bestechungsgelder in Höhe von rund 100 Millionen Dollar, die über einen Zeitraum von zwei Jahrzehnten gefloßen sind.

Krise? Welche Krise? Der Fußball steckt in keiner Krise. Wir sind nicht in einer Krise. Wir haben ein bisschen Schwierigkeiten. Und diese Schwierigkeiten lösen wir innerhalb unserer Familie.
— Sepp Blatter
