Chuck Blazer, the former FIFA official who turned whistleblower and gave evidence to the FBI about football-related corruption, has died, his lawyers have announced. The American, who had been battling cancer, served under Jack Warner as CONCACAF’s general secretary but was banned for life by FIFA in July 2015.
Blazer’s death was announced by his lawyers, Eric Corngold and Mary Mulligan.
“We are truly saddened by the passing of our client and friend, Chuck Blazer,” a statement from Corngold and Mulligan said.
“During his twenty years as CONCACAF General Secretary, Chuck Blazer was instrumental in bringing the federation into the modern age. His misconduct, for which he accepted full responsibility, should not obscure Chuck’s positive impact on international soccer.
“With Chuck’s guidance and leadership, CONCACAF transformed itself from impoverished to profitable, with substantial benefits and improvements to all member associations, players and fans.

“Throughout his adult life, Chuck felt great pride in his service to soccer. In fact, he devoted thirty years of his life to soccer at all levels of the game, with his involvement ranging from coaching his children’s youth teams to serving on FIFA’s executive committee.”
Blazer admitted in June 2015 that he and others took bribes totalling 10million US dollars for South Africa to host the 2010 World Cup and an undisclosed sum for Morocco’s unsuccessful bid to host the 1998 tournament.
The revelation, contained in a plea bargain published by the US Department of Justice, came little more than 24 hours after Sepp Blatter announced he would be standing down as FIFA president as a corruption scandal gripped world football’s governing body.
“I and others on the FIFA executive committee agreed to accept bribes in conjunction with the selection of South Africa as the host nation for the 2010 World Cup,” Blazer said in his testimony.
“Beginning in, or around, 2004 and continuing to 2011, I and others on the FIFA executive committee agreed to accept bribes in conjunction with the selection of South Africa as the host nation for the 2010 World Cup.”
