FIFA’s presidential election will go ahead on February 26 as planned, soccer’s governing body said on Twitter following an executive committee meeting on Tuesday.

The election will take place during an extraordinary FIFA Congress in Zurich, which will also vote on key reforms to soccer’s scandal-plagued governing body.
