Fifa Headquarters Graced By Royalty

FIFA received the first ever royal visit at its headquarters on Monday 28 January when His Majesty Ibrahim Mbombo Njoya, Sultan of the region of Bamum in Cameroon, and his wife came to meet the FIFA President in Zurich. Sultan Mbombo was in Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, but he was very keen to make the short trip to Zurich to meet Joseph S. Blatter and visit FIFA’s offices. Despite the fact that he has held the post of Cameroon Minister for Sports on three occasions and was also the first ever president of the Cameroon football association (FECAFOOT), the Sultan had never previously had the opportunity to come to Zurich.
