With no other presidential confirming their candidacy on Wednesday, the 48-year-old will now stand unopposed in the 5th June election being held in Paris ahead of this year’s Women’s World Cup.
Infantino has served as FIFA president since February 2016, when he succeeded the disgraced Sepp Blatter.
Last week, former Swiss international footballer Ramon Vega said he was considering launching a campaign to run against Infantino for FIFA presidency but, as with his former bid in 2015, he did not gain the backing of the minimum five associations from the body’s 211 members.
Infantino had also announced plans to revamp FIFA’s Club World Cup competition, with a reported US$25 billion pledge made towards the tournament by a combination of Japanese conglomerate SoftBank, the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund and the United Arab Emirates. That plan was shelved in November 2018 but is set to be revisited at the upcoming FIFA Council meeting next month.
