As the Minister for Sport and the Olympics said on 16 June 2011 (Hansard, col. 911):

"It is clear, both from our experience of the last bid and from what has happened subsequently at FIFA, that the organisation is in need of radical structural reform, and the principles of transparency and accountability must govern that. The newly re-elected president has set a process in train, and we will watch it carefully".
