Fifa confirms four candidates for presidency

Prince Ali of Jordan, Luis Figo and Michael van Praag have been confirmed as runners in the race for the top job at football's governing body.

A potential fifth contender, Champagne failed to win enough support in his bid to unseat Sepp Blatter.

Blatter, who has worked for Fifa since 1975, is seeking a fifth term in office to extend his 17-year reign.

Candidates had to secure the backing of five national football associations, with Champagne only receiving the support of three.

The election panel expects to 'formally admit and declare the candidates who are eligible for the office of Fifa President' in about two weeks.

The election will be held May 29 at Fifa's congress in Zurich.

Blatter remain favourite candidate to win.
