The Coca–Cola Company has called on embattled FIFA President, Sepp Blatter, to step down immediately.
The beverage company is one of the longest-standing corporate partners of FIFA.
A statement by Coca-Cola reads:
“For the benefit of the game, The Coca-Cola Company is calling for FIFA President Joseph Blatter to step down immediately so that a credible and sustainable reform process can begin in earnest. Every day that passes, the image and reputation of FIFA continues to tarnish. FIFA needs comprehensive and urgent reform, and that can only be accomplished through a truly independent approach.”
