Sepp Blatter will appear at the University of Basel next week as he sits on a panel which will discuss how FIFA can come out the other side of its current corruption crisis. 

The panel, entitled 'Reforming FIFA: The way forward?', will also feature Luis Moreno Ocampo, who was himself proposed for the probe into ethics and wrongdoing at the organisation, as well as being the former Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.

The description of the event notes that the panel members are more than qualified to be talking about the topic, given Blatter was FIFA president for a considerable amount of time, but they do note the slight issue that "he was repeatedly confronted with allegations of corruption and misconduct".

Also he's currently banned from all football-related activities of course...

The event will take place on Friday April 15th, and the discussion with Blatter and Ocampo will thankfully be streamed live on the university's site and YouTube, so you don't have to miss a minute of the action.
