According to an information of Sportcal (14.1.13) the 53 UEFA member federations will discuss possible changes of FIFA statutes on 24 th January 2013. The idea is to limit the FIFA presidency to two four-year terms and the age limit for officials to 72 years. According to Sportcal the current FIFA President, 76-year-old Sepp Blatter, is opposed to the introduction of age limits. The next FIFA congress – which could decide upon changes – will take place in Mauritius end of May 2013.

The reigning IHF President Hassan Moustafa was elected in 2000. If the 68-year-old Egyptian gets re-elected during the next IHF Congress in Oct 2013, his fourth term will expire in 2017.
