Excerpts from the statement Thursday by Hans Joachim Eckert, chairman of the adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA ethics committee, on the findings of the investigation into the 2018/2022 World Cup bidding:AUSTRALIAThe Australia 2022 bid team did undertake specific efforts to gain the support of a then FIFA executive committee member and it suggests that there have been efforts to conceal key relationships in this context. Mitchell Trubisky Womens Jersey .Report identified certain payments from the Football Federation of Australia to CONCACAF which, according to the report, appear to have been commingled, at least in part, with personal funds of the then CONCACAF president, who at the time also was a FIFA executive committee member. (Jack Warner)BELGIUM/NETHERLANDSNo issuesENGLANDMr. (Jack) Warner also asked England 2018 for favours and benefits related to a Trinidad and Tobago football club he owned, the Joe Public Football Club. Whether the England 2018 bid team ultimately provided any benefits to Mr. Warners club is unclear.England 2018 agreed to provide substantial assistance for a Trinidad and Tobago Under-20 team training camp in Britain in 2009.Mr. Warners conduct demonstrated an expectation that the bidding teams would react favourably and seek to curry favour with a voting member of the FIFA executive committee. According to the report, England 2018s response showed a willingness, time and again, to meet such expectation, thereby damaging the image of FIFA and the bidding process.The England 2018 bid team sponsored a gala dinner for the Caribbean Football Union at its annual congress in Trinidad in 2010, once again in an effort to curry favour with Jack Warner. ... The relevant support amounted to $55,000.England 2018 accommodated or at least attempted to satisfy, the improper requests of at least two FIFA executive committee members.JAPANThe Japan 2022 bid team distributed in 2010 several different gifts to senior FIFA officials, members of the FIFA executive committee and some of their wives. The value of the gifts (which included ... special balls, digital cameras and clutch bags) ranged from approximately $700 to approximately $2,000 each. ... Executive committee members concerned denied receiving any improper or valuable gifts from a bid team or did not attribute any significant relevance to the gifts.QATARAccording to the report, the conduct of two individuals who acted as consultants or advisers to the Qatar 2022 bid team raised concerns. The investigation identified certain questionable conduct.Qatar 2022 sponsored in January 2010 the CAF (Confederation of African Football) congress in Angola. The sponsorship agreement granted Qatar 2022 exclusive rights to market its bid during the event. For this privilege, the bid team paid CAF approximately $1.8 million.During previous investigations of Mr. (Mohammed) Bin Hammam (former Asian Football Confederation president and former FIFA executive committee member), it had been established that he had made several different improper payments to high-ranking CAF football officials during the time before the Dec. 2, 2010, FIFA executive committee vote. ... The record ... does not support the conclusion that the purpose of these payments was to promote the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup bid. Rather, the evidence ... strongly suggests that Mr. Bin Hamman paid CAF officials to influence their votes in the June 2011 election for FIFA president where he was a candidate. ... The same applies to a payment of $1,212,000 Mr. Hamman appears to have made to Mr. Jack Warner.Among the recipients of payments made by Mr. Mohamed Bin Hamman ... was also one to Mr. Reynald Temarii, the OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) president and a FIFA executive committee member. ... There is no direct link between Qatar 2022 and any payments of Mr. Bin Hammam to Mr. Temarii.RUSSIAThe Russia 2018 bid committee made only a limited amount of documents available for review, which was explained by the fact that the computers used at the time by the Russia bid committee had been leased and then returned to their owner after the bidding process.

However, the Russia bid committee confirmed in a letter dated Aug. 1, 2014, that Google USA had not responded.SOUTH KOREAMoon-Joon Chung, a vice-president on the FIFA executive committee and honorary president of the Korean Football Association sent letters to executive committee members in 2010 stating Korea intended to raise $777 million from 2011 to 2022 to aid confederation and member associations to build new football infrastructure and renovate existing facilities. ... The report concludes that the Global Football Fund letters created at least the appearance of a conflict or an offer of benefits to FIFA executive committee members in an effort to influence their votes.SPAIN/PORTUGALNo mentionUNITED STATESThere appear to have been certain discrepancies in the documentation and contact reports submitted by the USA 2022 bid committee to FIFA on the one hand and the testimonies of U.S. football officials on the other. ...

Russia has spent about $51 billion to deliver the Sochi Olympics, which run Feb. 7-23, making them the most expensive games ever, even though as a winter event it hosts many fewer athletes than summer games do.

Its a blessing and a burden for nine sons of former NHL players who are all expected to be taken in the first four rounds of the draft this weekend.CALGARY -- After seven years of learning the ropes in Phoenix, Brad Treliving says hes ready to return home and take the reins of an NHL team in a hockey-mad market. The Flames announced Monday that Treliving, a former assistant general manager with the Coyotes, will take over the vacant GM spot in Calgary. "Im ready for this,"Treliving said. "I know the challenges here we have ahead of us as a team ... I know the expectations of this market. I know the expectations of this fan base. And I want you to know Im prepared for this and Im ready for this challenge." Team president of hockey operations Brian Burke officially announced the hiring at an afternoon news conference. "Make no mistake about it folks, Brad is the general manager of this team, effective right now," Burke said, adding that Treliving was the only candidate the Flames interviewed. "Its important people understand that. It speaks volumes for what we think of Brad as a general manager," Burke said. Treliving, a native of Penticton, B.C., referred to himself a "proud Western Canadian" and said he welcomed the move. "In a lot of ways I look at this as a homecoming," the 44-year-old said. "Coming in yesterday, seeing the Rocky Mountains ... I appreciate Brian and (Flames president and CEO Ken Kings) hospitality. You got rid of the snow for a guy whos had his blood thinning in the desert the past few years." Treliving also had kind words for the Coyotes organization, where he worked closely with GM Don Maloney and was in charge of their AHL affiliate in Portland. Treliving worked for the Coyotes while they were on shaky ground and administered by the NHL before being bought by a Canadian-led group last year. "I know for a lot of people up here and outsidee of the Phoenix market over the past few years, theres been a lot of stories written (but) it was a great experience there because of the people there. Eddie Jackson Bears Jersey. " Treliving will take over general manager duties from Burke, who served as interim GM after firing Jay Feaster in December. "He is the single most significant factor for me being here today," Treliving said of Burke. Treliving is also assistant GM for Team Canada at the IIHF world championship. He previously served as president of the Central Hockey League and president and director of hockey operations for the Western Professional Hockey League, which he founded. The Flames missed the playoffs for the fifth straight season after finishing with a 35-40-7 record for 77 points. Calgary was 13th in the Western Conference standings. As the Coyotes vice-president of hockey operations, Treliving worked closely with Maloney on personnel matters and helping build a team despite the financial limitations of being run by the NHL for four seasons. "Brad has learned at the knee of a general manager for whom I have great respect, Don Maloney. Hes been directly and actively involved in every facet of the general managers job," Burke said "He has a keen mind and a reputation as an extremely hard worker. Its my job to provide Brad with whatever guidance and leadership I can." The team made the playoffs in each of their four seasons without an owner before failing to reach the post-season the past two seasons. Trelivings duties also included managing the professional and amateur scouting staffs and making player personnel assignments to the teams minor-league affiliates. Treliving, who played in the International Hockey League, AHL and ECHL, is the son of Boston Pizza co-owner Jim Treliving.
