FIFA's congress has decided that Sepp Blatter, the incumbent president, will stand for re-election - unopposed.

But the reputation of football's governing body is at an all time low. Corruption scandals plague the organisation.

Allegations of bribes-for-votes has led to the suspension of Jack Warner, FIFA's vice president, and Mohammed bin Hammam, Blatter's only rival for the presidency.

And suggestions that Qatar "bought" the World Cup - accusations they strenuously deny - have led to calls for a full investigation into the 2022 World Cup vote. 

So, could Blatter really be the man to rebuild FIFA's tainted image? Or does the multi-million dollar corporation need an entire overhaul?

Inside Story, with presenter Jane Dutton, discusses with Mehrdad Masoudi, a producer for the football show Futbol Mundial and former media press officer for the FIFA world cup in 1998; David Owen, the chief columnist for, a website dedicated to football business and politics; and Grant Wall, a senior writer at Sports Illustrated
