Prince Ali Al-Hussein is all the rage now in the Next FIFA President election betting. The Jordanian has moved into even money favourite with Skybet, helped out perhaps with the investigation into a payment Michel Platini’s received from Sepp Blatter. Platini, who had had the full support of UEFA and the AFC in his bid to become president was a clear front runner for many, but now the Frenchman has drifted a long way back to a price of 8/1 to be the Next FIFA President.

Prince Ali Al-Hussein should be hard to beat from here on out. He is currently operating as the President of Jordan Football Association and was the founder and president of the West Asian Football Federation. He also gained huge popularity when he vocally supported FIFA’s decision to get the ban lifted on women wearing the hijab in the game.

The special congress will be held next February on the 26th and it is a huge role ahead for whoever gets the nod. The banned current President Sepp Blatter, who is serving a 90-day suspension alongside UEFA boss Platini, has admitted that it had been decided before a vote that Russia would be hosting the 2018 World Cup.

As a relative latecomer into the picture, Asian Football Confederation president and FIFA vice-president Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa is now 3/1 second favourite. He could gain big if the AFC pull their prior support for Platini to become the next FIFA President. That’s what they had been supporting but now they could switch support o the Bahraini in charge of the AFC.

Last minute entrant into the candidacy, Gianni Infantino is a 6/1 third favourite in the race. The 45-year-old is the UEFA General Secretary and he has been appealing to the broad spectrum of all 209 national associations around the world. He does have some credibility as well because he currently oversees the draw for the European Championship, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. Clean, conspiracy free-draws is just where FIFA will want to be heading.
