Swiss Prosecutors Reportedly Seek 28-Month Jail Sentence for PSG Football Club President

According to prosecutors, Valcke received 1.4-2.3 billion euros ($1.6-7.7 billion) in unwarranted benefits, including the exclusive right to use Al-Khelaifi's villa for 18 months without paying rent, in exchange for transferring the Middle East and North Africa rights for broadcasting the 2026 and 2030 World Cups to a media group chaired by Al-Khelaifi.

Valcke, who had served as the FIFA secretary general since 2007, was suspended from duty in September 2015 due to possible involvement in illegal ticket sale schemes for 2014 FIFA World Cup matches in Brazil.

In February 2016, the FIFA Ethics Committee suspended him for 12 years, but the term was reduced by the FIFA Appeals Committee to 10 years in June of the same year.
