FIFA Clarifies 2010 Payment

FIFA have shed more light on their request for restitution following the indictments issued against 41 defendants by the US Department of Justice.
 
In addition, they stated that the US indictments never alleged that South Africa "bought" the World Cup by using bribes.
 
FIFA Statement On The Restitution Claim To The US District Court
 
FIFA’s Request for Restitution is based on the allegations contained in the two indictments issued by the U.S. Department of Justice against 41 defendants. In its submission, FIFA is restating these allegations as the principal basis for its restitution request.
 
Eleven defendants have pleaded guilty to the charged offenses and admitted their crimes. FIFA intends to seek restitution from these defendants for their misconduct, as well as any other defendants who are convicted. 
 
The US indictments do not allege that South Africa "bought" the World Cup with bribes. Nor does FIFA. The US indictments, which FIFA is relying upon in its restitution request, merely accuses certain individuals of criminal behaviour.
