NEW YORK (Reuters) - McDonald's Corp, a World Cup sponsor, said on Wednesday that it found the U.S. Department of Justice's indictment of senior officials at football's governing body FIFA "extremely concerning."
U.S. authorities said nine football officials and five sports media and promotions executives faced corruption charges involving more than $150 million in bribes. Swiss police arrested seven FIFA officials who are now awaiting extradition to the United States.
The company said in a statement that it is in contact with FIFA on the matter and is closely monitoring the situation.
