Reigning FIFA president Gianni Infantino is set to remain at the helm for another four years after being confirmed as the only candidate for election in June.

The 48-year-old was the sole individual to successfully submit their candidature for the position prior to the February 5 deadline and will thus run unopposed.

Former Switzerland and Tottenham defender Ramon Vega had previously announced his intention to run for the office but was not included among the options.

Infantino was appointed FIFA president, taking over from Sepp Blatter, in February 2016.

The election will take place at the 69th FIFA Congress in Paris on June 5, 2019.
