The members of the Council will be elected by the member associations of the respective region under FIFA's electoral regulations, with a FIFA Review Committee to conduct comprehensive and enhanced integrity checks.

Meanwhile, the proposal expects FIFA will reduce the standing committees from 26 to nine, with increased participation of the football community, which will provide efficiency while ensuring that all member associations are involved in a more meaningful and effective way.

The recommendations will be put before the Congress as proposed statutory changes for approval at its extraordinary session in Zurich on February 26, 2016.
