FIFA appoints top German Police officer, Ralf Mutschke as new Director of Security

FIFA has appointed Mr Ralf Mutschke, senior manager at the German Federal Criminal Police Office and a former INTERPOL director as its new Director of Security.

Mr Mutschke, 52, will take office June 1, 2012, said FIFA.

“Mutschke will be in charge of the new FIFA Security Division, responsible for all security matters related to FIFA competitions across the world, the global security concepts for football in general, security around FIFA headquarters in Zurich, the FIFA President and the FIFA administration, as well as for matters related to the integrity and protection of the game itself,” FIFA said in a statement March 2, 2012.

The statement quoted Mutschke who accepted his job, saying “My tasks as Director of Security will be manifold. For me, the main issue will be the integrity of FIFA competitions. The focus here will be on match-fixing, betting fraud and corruption.”
