FIFA Headquarters

FIFA, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, is headquartered in the Zurichberg, at the very top of the hill overlooking the city of Zurich.  The FIFA building is all business, save for the trophies in the lobby, but is surrounded by well-kept soccer fields with the flags of member nations.

I like to think that the ominous, dark storm clouds rising behind the flags are symbolic of FIFA’s current state and hopeful changes to reduce corruption in the sport.  It seems that the scandal is ever-evolving to capture a truly wide net of corruption.  It was also in Zurich, at the 1000+CHF per night hotel Baer au Lac, that the now-infamous arrests of FIFA officials occurred.
