The Federation Internationalede Football Association (FIFA) is a nonprofit organization which governs international football, futsal, and beach soccer games all over the world. In 2015, the United States Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI) accused the organization committee members because they received money from candidate countries for the 2010, 2018, and 2022 World Cup host countries. In addition, the committee members also gave money to the co-organization members in order to buy ballots for the FIFA’s presidential election in 2011. Our project focuses on this bribery as unethical issue and analyzes the situation and causes. Then, we will provide and explain our solutions to avoid the bribery. The solutions focus on three aspects which are people, structure, and process. For example, the solutions include how to fix organization structure and how to change the voting process to increase transparency etc.
