Zurich:

FIFA has opened its long-promised website for whistleblowers to report allegations of corruption and match-fixing in world football.

FIFA says alleged infringements of its Code of Ethics reported at the site (https://www.bkms-system.net/FIFA) will directly reach its lead ethics prosecutor, Michael Garcia.

Garcia told The Associated Press last month that his support staff would see all complaints without being filtered by FIFA.

The website, which is in four languages, is administered by an outside agency called Business Keeper, FIFA says.

FIFA says the project is part of its ongoing reforms to help ensure football stakeholders are "setting standards for legal and ethical behaviour."

FIFA also has created a private telephone hotline for officials in its 209 member federations to report corruption and ethics violations.
