Moreover, Mr?Hargitay spelled out the connection between the timing of the payments and what he described as our collective work, even warning that reality was not served by a protracted approach that will kick in in Januaryi.e., after the FIFA Executive Committees December 2010 decision.

Mr?Hargitays email to a voting member of the FIFA executive committee contravened bid registration rule 11.4.

In this case, evidence in the record indicates that a desire to influence Mr?Warners vote in the Australian bids favour motivated this contribution to the stadium.

Mr Garcia details evidence suggesting the FFA was warned by one of its own senior managers, John Boultbee, about concerns surrounding a request by FIFA executive Jack Warner for funds to support a football Centre of Excellence (COE) in Trinidad.

While Mr Buckley, who led Australias bid as FFA chief executive, and former FFA chairman Mr Lowy, are not implicated in any corruption, the Garcia report details new evidence that shows the pair variously supported practices that appear to have breached World Cup bidding rules and, in the case of Mr Buckley, suggest the FFA was prepared to make improper offers to secure the votes of FIFA chiefs.

Mr Garcia found that those points are strong evidence that FFA made improper payments intended to influence the vote of an executive committee member.

The FFA contributed $500,000 to the project, although it was later revealed these funds were placed into a bank account controlled by Mr Warner, who most likely stole them.

Mr Garcias report states: The email communications show that Mr?Hargitay, who had a lucrative contract with the Australian bid team, executed his strategy of using his purported relationship with President Blatter and other high-ranking FIFA officials to create the appearance that he was influencing the bidding process.

The bidding guidelines requiring candidates to support development efforts cannot be fairly read to encourage such behaviour. FFAs statement that there was uncertainty as to how to demonstrate that commitment?is not credible. Far from seeming uncertain, Australia 2022 appears to have reached the firm conclusion that it could best demonstrate [its] commitment?by targeting development projects in areas home to FIFA executive committee members.

The 2014 report by FIFA ethics chief investigator Michael Garcia, which was leaked overnight to a German news, details strong evidence that FFA [Football Federation Australia] made improper payments intended to influence the vote of an executive committee member on the FIFA panel deciding who should host the World Cup.

Mr Garcia concluded that Australias bid team perceived the payment as a benefit for Mr?Warner, as did Mr?Warner himself.

The report is highly critical of the FFAs hiring of German businessman Fedor Radmann as a consultant, not least because it was known he had a close relationship with FIFA chief Franz Beckenbauer, whose vote Australia was chasing.

The panel ultimately voted that Qatar and Russia should host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The Garcia report raises significant questions about the conduct of Mr Buckley and, to a lesser extent, Mr Lowy, while dramatically re-opening an ugly chapter of Australian football history many involved in the bid want buried.

Hargitay forwarded or blind-copied that communication to Australia 2022 Chairman Frank Lowy, who replied to Mr. Hargitay: Peter, great piece should help JB?- seemingly a reference to President Blatters initials - FIFA and ourselves. Well done. Frank.

A FIFA report into the World Cup scandal has been released and is critical of Australias 2022 bid.

His communications with FIFA officials reflect inappropriate denigration of other bids and show that he obtained confidential internal FIFA ethics committee correspondence. That misconduct was exacerbated when he forwarded those communications to the bid team members in order to demonstrate his insider status. His actions gave the appearance, at least to his employer, that he was improperly influencing the process.

Mr Garcia said that an innocuous-sounding explanation in Mr?Buckleys July 2, 2010 letter to FIFA about FFAs support of this travel omitted any mention of Mr?Warners requests for escalating financial support of the TTFF U-20 team, of Mr Hargitays statement assuring Australia 2022 that if it covered TTFFs travel expenses he would make sure there is a quid pro quo, of Mr?Hargitays proposal to disguise those quid pro quo expenses as Mr?Hargitays own marketing costs, and of Mr?Hargitays subsequent promise that paying still more costs for the team from Warners association WILL make a difference!.

While there is no evidence the FFA sought to directly bribe Mr Warner by personally enriching him, Mr Garcia found its donation to the stadium development is wrong because it creates at least the impression that the benefit was provided for an improper purpose.

On January 7, 2009, FIFA ethics committee member Les Murray forwarded Mr Hargitay an email he had sent to the chair of the ethics committee, Sebastian Coe, asking to discuss potentially investigating certain conduct by Englands bid team. Mr?Hargitay then forwarded the email to Australia 2022 Chairman Frank Lowy along with the message: Boom. Here we go:):)

Whether the bid team knew Mr?Warner would later misappropriate the money or that the COE project itself was designed for such purposes by Mr?Warner does not change these facts, Mr Garcia wrote.

The Garcia report is also damning of the way the FFA sought to contribute funds to football projects in developing countries in which certain FIFA chiefs resided or which were linked to the personal interests of FIFA chiefs.
