The Oceania federation may be getting its seat at the table back just in the nick of time for the World Cup bidding votes. Suspended Oceania FIFA Vice President Reynald Temarii is abandoning the appeal of his suspension for vote-selling allegations. Temarii’s actions may allow Oceania to appoint an acting representative with voting privileges.
David Chung will be Temarii’s replacement as acting Oceania President. FIFA has not confirmed he will be allowed to vote, but it was rumored that Chung was on his way to Zurich.
