FIFA said Monday that ticketing allegations about Morocco’s Abercromie travel agency and its affiliate, Morocco Travel Agency, were not correct.FIFA said in a statement it had “no information to support” claims that the Moroccan company had violated FIFA regulations.
“We are disappointed that the claims made by the news agency are false,” FIFA said.
“We are currently in dialogue with the Moroccan authorities regarding the allegations.”
Morocco’s tourism agency, Abercramie, was also not affected by the scandal.
The scandal, which has rocked FIFA since it emerged in November, has seen the arrest of former FIFA vice president Jack Warner and five other people in a bid to shed light on alleged corruption in the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Qatar and Russia.
The FIFA executive committee said Monday the committee was in talks with the U.S. attorney’s office in connection with the investigation.
The Swiss authorities also said they were investigating whether FIFA had illegally accepted payments from the Russian-owned company Tbilisi International Airport, which is accused of running a criminal enterprise in which it was paying bribes to FIFA officials to secure the 2018 World Cup.
