UEFA’s headquarters have been raided by Swiss police as the fallout from the ‘Panama Papers’ leak spreads to European football’s governing body.
Police seized details of a contract signed by new FIFA president Gianni Infantino, according to a report in the Guardian newspaper.

A UEFA statement confirmed that police had visited its offices:

“UEFA can confirm that today we received a visit from the office of the Swiss Federal Police acting under a warrant and requesting sight of the contracts between UEFA and Cross Trading/Teleamazonas.

“Naturally, UEFA is providing the Federal Police with all relevant documents in our possession and will cooperate fully.”

Infantino was recently elected as the head of FIFA, taking over from disgraced former head Sepp Blatter.

Infantino previously served as director of legal services at UEFA, and reports claim that co-signed a television rights contract in 2006 with two businessmen who have since been embroiled in a corruption scandal.
