Blatter and Platini will avoid going face-to-face in friendly match after Swiss authorities questioned both.
The calls from the soft drinks giant Coca-Cola and the international fast-food company McDonald’s on Friday, come a week after Blatter was placed under criminal investigation by Swiss authorities for alleged financial wrongdoing at FIFA, which he has led since 1998.
Women’s role in football
Earlier this week, Blatter told FIFA staff he was determined to remain in power until February’s emergency presidential election.
Blatter’s own position has been weakened as lawyers oversee key decisions at scandal-battered FIFA and he waits to hear whether he will be suspended by the ethics committee.
Blatter did address a leadership issue earlier Friday in FIFA’s in-house magazine – but not his own.
Blatter complained that quotas must be implemented to stop men dominating positions of power in football.
“Football continues to be dominated by men,” Blatter wrote in FIFA Weekly. “It is our duty to change this. Women must feel that they have an equal chance of succeeding in football as their male counterparts.
“FIFA, the confederations and our member associations have to break the cycle that makes it so much easier for men to ascend to positions of responsibility. This is not just a moral duty.”
Blatter said there is “compelling evidence that gender-balanced organisations make better decisions and produce better results”.
There are currently no female contenders in the race to succeed Blatter in the February 26 election.
