FFF: Philippe Diallo massively elected president until the end of 2024

After three months of interim, he is confirmed in his functions. Philippe Diallo, 59, was elected this Saturday president of the French Football Federation until December 2024. The former deputy president takes over the mandate of Noël Le Graët, present in the room to attend this vote. The Menhir resigned on February 28 after several months of controversy, culminating in the publication of a vitriolic ministerial audit against the leader, his director general and the institution as a whole.

The candidacy of Philippe Diallo, the only one presented by the Comex, was approved by the electoral college of the Federal Assembly (63% amateur football, 37% pro football) with 91.26% of the votes. A real plebiscite, when the Le Graët list was elected with nearly 71% of the votes in March 2021. “You are doing me a very great honor, he said just after the vote. It is also a great responsibility. We have experienced a number of difficulties in recent months. This Comex is a united, united and competent team. »

Philippe Diallo will have the mission of bringing serenity to the largest sports federation in France. Among its priority issues: the governance project, to comply with the law of March 2022, and the fight against sexist and sexual violence.

During this Meeting, the Comex also saw the entry of two new members to replace Noël Le Graët and Jamel Sandjak, who left during this winter’s storm. They are Claude Delforge and Alexandre Gougnard, respectively president of the districts of Val-d’Oise and Gironde.
