Sponsor Visa spooked by FIFA soccer scandal

Visa has become the latest leading corporate backer of FIFA to express concern about the corruption scandal within world soccer's governing body.

The credit card giant joins fellow World Cup sponsors Coca-Cola, Adidas and Emirates Airline in voicing disappointment about the crisis that has seen FIFA executives Mohamed bin Hammam and Jack Warner suspended.

Visa says in a statement to The Associated Press that "the current situation is clearly not good for the game and we ask that FIFA take all necessary steps to resolve the concerns that have been raised."
