|The list of candidates for FIFA's presidential election is set to be confirmed|
FIFA are expected to announce the list of candidates for their presidential election on Wednesday. Eight candidates said they were standing before Monday's 11pm deadline, but FIFA is checking to see if all have the required five letters of support from member associations.
There are concerns at FIFA that some candidates have claimed letters of support from the same football associations. Associations are allowed only to back one candidate. If they have backed more than one candidate, their letters of support will be discounted and that could mean that some candidates have to withdraw from the race.#BREAKING Football: FIFA confirms seven candidates for president— Agence France-Presse (@AFP) October 28, 2015
