NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (NOVEMBER 03, 2015) (REUTERS) WIDE OF TOKYO SEXWALE, FIFA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, AT PODIUM AT SECURING SPORT 2015 CONFERENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) TOKYO SEXWALE, FIFA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "This mammoth task of undoing the damage done to the brand of FIFA cannot be done by one person, one president. There's no one man that's going to fix FIFA like that, it's a big organization, biggest in the world, occupies space in all countries, United Nations 180-something, FIFA is all countries over the world. To undo the damage will require the collective leadership with the collective wisdom of a leadership collective, a leadership executive, a leadership, which has been democratically elected in in accordance with the new FIFA reforms." AUDIENCE LISTENING (SOUNDBITE) (English) TOKYO SEXWALE, FIFA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "Coca Cola, Budweiser, these companies, partners of FIFA have got the right to speak. But I think we should be very careful how far we go with sponsors' activism. I want to talk on my last point about the unintended consequences of sponsor activism. So they said Mr. Blatter should go, fine, okay, and if he doesn't go we pull out our money, okay. What they did not mean and what they did not see is that we will pull out our money if he doesn't go, they're about to appoint the next FIFA president or the president of any organization that will be afflicted by similar problems. I know, I'm in business, I want to invest my money, I want to know and understand if I'm sponsored in something, it goes to the project and I can see the project on the ground. But I think the activism of the sponsors should not have gone as far as saying, 'If he doesn't go, we will withdraw our money.' It should have ended where Adidas said, 'We think that system must be fixed up, get this thing working, blah, blah, blah, blah, it's okay.' But when you say, 'Mr. Blatter, if he doesn't go, we're withdrawing our money, then Mr. Sexwale, if he doesn't suit them, he can't be elected.' That's the unintended consequence of sponsor activism. The sponsors will be in a position to determine who gets into the NBA and who doesn't get there. I don't think they were intending that. So one of the things that needs to be done in giving confidence and building back the brand of FIFA is to sit down with the sponsors and say, 'There is a way of doing things without you saying so-and-so should go.'" SEXWALE LEAVING PODIUM SEXWALE ENTERING PRESS ROOM (SOUNDBITE) (English) TOKYO SEXWALE, FIFA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "Let the light be shone on whatever he has done. But you know people, Nelson Mandela, somebody asked me, you don't crucify a person, like you my sister here, I can't write off your history because you did something this afternoon. I wish Mr. Beckenbauer well in dealing with his problems. He is not guilty. In my country I should be able to say this, I was in jail for a long time for things I have not done. Mandela was interned for 27 years for what he has not done, for asking for freedom. I hope at the end of the day people are able to clear their names and so on. So Mr. Beckenbauer did say, 'I like Tokyo.' So I can't say, 'He must not like me.' That would be dishonest. I welcomed the fact that he saw me as a good person who can do things and I welcome the fact that he's busy now trying to sort out problems around his name." WIDE OF FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SITTING DOWN (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "The mission is to propose to the executive committee of FIFA in its meeting, which will be held December 2, which is very early, a package of reforms, essentially reforms of structures, statutes and hopefully have the FIFA Congress in February 26, adopting these reforms." WIDE OF CARRARD (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "The consensus is on 12 years. We think it's good. We're a worldwide organization with 209 countries involved. It takes time to know the people, to know the countries, to know the cultures, to know everything. So it takes three, four years to know where you are, then you can really produce good work for a number of years and if you are excellent maybe you deserve an extra four years." CARRARD (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "There must be an age limit and we felt that the last time you should apply for some position should be when you are 70, hence, 74 as a cut off limit for all functions. WIDE OF CARRARD (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "There's a lot of work to be done and again and again, when you have a new universal organization, the difficulty is to have a level of governance, which of course, it's easier to impose the highest quality at the top, but you must, from top down, try to raise the level of governance universally. That's a big challenge." CARRARD GETTING UP FROM CHAIR (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "I'm currently in contact. The problem is a problem also of timing because I have to reconsider my agenda, my timing, because FIFA has advanced the meeting to early December and I'm trying to see how I can be there. I have contacts for it, I won't say names." (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPORTER ASKING: "When is the announcement on the advisory board?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "I don't know yet." (SOUNDBITE) (English) REPORTER ASKING: "Before December?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) FRANCOIS CARRARD, CHAIRMAN OF THE 2016 FIFA REFORM COMMITTEE, SAYING: "I hope. I hope." SIGN READING "SECURING SPORT: NEW YORK 2015"
