A look at the main issues at this week's 63rd FIFA Congress in Mauritius, world football's top meeting of the year, which opens Thursday:
FIFA's 209 member countries will vote on more reforms at the two-day Congress, including proposals for age and term limits for elected officials. The 77-year-old FIFA President Sepp Blatter is opposed to preventing a candidate from holding office because of his age, saying it could be ''seen as discriminatory.'' But the International Olympic Committee, of which Blatter is a member, now has an age limit of 70. Blatter was softer on possible term limits, saying this week ''I am not against a limitation of a number of mandates ... but then it should apply to everybody.'' Blatter's opinion matters because of his ability to sway the mood of the congress - and also because an age limit could affect his chances of re-election, should he decide to backtrack and stand again for the presidency.
