FIFA will have a new president on February 26. After 18 years, Sepp Blatters controversial reign will come to an official end at the FIFA Congress in Zurich. Five candidates want to replace Blatter and become the most powerful man in world football, and whoever wins will become the ninth elected president in FIFAs 112-year history.The new president will be elected in a secret ballot of FIFAs 209 member associations, but Kuwait and Indonesia are banned, so there may be only 207 votes up for grabs. Africa has 54 votes, Europe 53, Asia 46, North and Central America and the Caribbean 35, Oceania 11 and South America 10. A candidate needs two thirds of the votes to win in the first round. In subsequent rounds, the candidate with the lowest number of votes drops out and a simple majority is required to win.During the past three months, Sky Sports News HQ has interviewed all five candidates - Sheikh Salman of Bahrain, Gianni Infantino, Prince Ali of Jordan, Jerome Champagne and Tokyo Sexwale.Over the next few days we are profiling each candidate, study their manifestos and assess their chances. We continue the analysis by looking at Jerome Champagne.Profile: Sheikh SalmanProfile: Tokyo SexwaleJEROME CHAMPAGNE:WHY IS HE STANDING?Like Prince Ali, Champagne has unfinished business at FIFA. He tried to stand in last Mays election, but he could not get the five letters of support he needed from member associations. This time, he received the letters and his self-funded campaign has been all about reforming FIFA and making football fairer for all.Champagne worked at FIFA for 11 years until he was fired by Sepp Blatter. Blatter had been put under pressure to act by the disgraced former president of the Asian Football Confederation Mohammed Bin Hammam. Champagne says he fell out with Bin Hammam while he was trying to clean up some of the confederations. WHAT ARE HIS CHANCES?He has no chance of winning, but he would argue his ideas have been an important part of the debate. At the start of the campaign, he predicted this would be an open election: This crisis is very severe. A lot of federations want someone with experience. I dont mind being an outsider. [Barack] Obama was an outsider, Pope Francis was an outsider, Francois Hollande was an outsider. That is life.Even though he is a rank outsider for the top job, Champagne may yet be involved in the next administration. He has the experience and appetite to be a secretary general.WHAT KIND OF PRESIDENT WILL HE BE?Champagne says he would do three things first if he won: kiss his wife, open a bottle of champagne and go out to celebrate. The next day he would set out to modernise FIFA.He says he would be a hands-on president. In what could be construed as a thinly-veiled dig at Sheikh Salman, Champagne said some of his opponents wanted to be the honorary president while he wanted to be the real president.Champagne knows his way around FIFA, having worked in Zurich as an adviser to Blatter and as the deputy secretary general and the director of international relations. Before FIFA he was a sports journalist, a French diplomat and the head of protocol at the 1998 World Cup in France. Champagne revealed he had differences with Mohammed bin Hammam WHAT STANDS OUT IN HIS MANIFESTO? It could be bad news for Europe if Champagne gets anywhere near the presidency. His proposals for re-allocating World Cup slots would lead to fewer places for Europe. At the moment Europes 53 countries get 13 World Cup places while Africas 54 countries get only five places.Champagne says we need a fairer system and he does not think the answer is to expand the World Cup from 32 to 40 teams.Less controversially, he wants to make FIFA more transparent, boost development programmes, raise the profile of womens football and introduce video technology to help referees. Champagne wants to double FIFA funding to the poorest 100 member associations, from £170,000 a year to £340,000 a year.He would also try to move the 2022 Qatar World Cup back from winter to May and June.WHAT DOES HE THINK OF SEPP BLATTER?There are no hard feelings, even though he was fired by Blatter. Champagne thinks Blatter is an honest man who has made bad management decisions: As far as we know he has not been accused of embezzlement. Im sure that history will judge him differently than the current news. No-one can argue that he has revolutionised the game.The two men are still in touch and Champagne phoned Blatter when the suspended president was released from hospital after a stress-related illness in November. Sepp Blatter sacked Champagne at FIFA but the pair are still on good terms WHO DOES HE BLAME FOR THE FIFA CRISIS?Champagne blames FIFAs problems on bad management and the greed of senior officials who wielded too much power with too little control.He worked at FIFA from 1999 to 2010 and he has never been accused of corruption or dishonesty: People in football know I am clean but I understand the scepticism. Theres a difference between smelling something and having the evidence.WHO DOES HE SUPPORT?St Etienne and Barcelona. He grew up supporting St Etienne but he is also a paying member of Barcelona.He says if he is elected he will remain a fan first: I want to tell English fans that I am one of them. If elected, my biggest concern is to keep feeling the pulse of the fans.Watch full coverage of the FIFA Presidential Election on February 26 on Sky Sports News HQ.

Bennie Thompson Jersey .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Richie McCaw was in unchartered territory on Tuesday.The man regarded as one of rugbys greatest ever players -- if not the greatest -- a winner of two Rugby World Cups, seemingly endless Bledisloe triumphs and a handful of Super Rugby titles, was in unfamiliar surroundings.McCaw, in Sydney ahead of the premiere of the documentary Chasing Great, which charts his journey from talented rugby teenager to global superstar, experienced a foreign feeling: Australian admiration.Oh, yeah I probably am to be honest, when asked whether he was feeling the local love.I think youre right, a lot of the times you come over here [Australia], its leading up to the game on Saturday which has its, I guess, different feel about it.Given the fact this is in fact a Bledisloe Cup week, McCaw may have expected a more frosty or at least banter-heavy crowd at the Star Casino. But for the large show of corporates on hand, of which there was more than just a smattering of Kiwis, they were glued to his every word spliced between clips of a film which goes deep within the Test greats mind and the inner sanctum of the All Blacks.From his humble beginnings as an Otago schoolboy, the rapid ascension to the All Blacks and promotion to captain, the heartache of the shock quarterfinal loss to France in 2007 and then the ultimate double redemption of two consecutive World Cup triumphs, Chasing Great travels the highs and lows of McCaws astonishing career.And given he was there for the first eight victories of the current All Blacks record-equalling run, he will be as much a part of the new mark should New Zealand defeat Australia on Saturday to notch an 18th straight win.I think they have got better, theres no doubt, McCaw said when asked about how the All Blacks had performed since his retirement.Well Steve Hansen for a start was going to set the tone that that [a drop-off in form] wasnt acceptable if we did. But if you look at the guys that are still there, you know like Kieran Read whos captain, hes played 90-something Tests now; Owen Frranks has played about that as well; so theres a lot of experience there.dddddddddddd.So having that as an excuse, you know I havent been too close to them, but just listening to the way they talk, theyve pretty much eliminated that as an excuse to drive them. And I think from my point of view and I think the same for the guys that are left, if they had dipped well that probably shows that we havent left it in the right shape that it should be.That was a big thing we talked about over the last four years, its got to be able to be whoever fills that jersey, whether youve been around for a while or not, you make sure its better. And I think thats what happened, which I guess from my point of view sitting back with a bit of pride, you know that the guys have got that drive to be better which is awesome.Chasing Great is in cinemas across Australia this weekend while McCaw will no doubt be looking forward to a spell away from the publicity trail.He will return to flying gliders and helicopters in New Zealands South Island, but given his amazing career and New Zealands rugby-mad public, he will always retain celebrity status.Asked to answer one final question on Tuesday, how he defined greatness -- an appropriate query given the films title -- McCaw responded: I think the one thing is: be consistent. Theres players that youd say had the most talent, could do the most special things; but they only did it for a small amount of time.I think people that can perform at a level thats right up there for a long period of time; that takes a lot of energy and effort. And thats what I think is a good criteria if youre going to talk about something like that.McCaws greatness few would dare question and now that we have his definition on that topic -- prolonged consistency -- a win on Saturday for the All Blacks team he left in such great shape will ensure they too ascend to the same category.
