FIFA will host a conference on ethical sports leadership organised by the Brussels-based World Forum for Ethics in Business and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar is scheduled to attend the event.

FIFA says its president Sepp Blatter will open the September 19 meeting which aims to "elaborate on what business and politics can learn from sports."

Taking part are FIFA ethics committee chairmen Michael Garcia and Joachim Eckert, who have investigated widespread allegations of corruption implicating football officials and World Cup hosting bidders.

Sports stars scheduled to attend include India cricket great Sachin Tendulkar and two-time Olympic figure skating champion Katarina Witt of Germany, the organizers say.

Speakers include Transparency International sports adviser Sylvia Schenk and international criminal prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo of Argentina, the original candidate for Garcia's FIFA position.

FIFA says the event will "propose a substantial agenda for action."
