Swiss prosecutors on Thursday announced they were opening a new criminal investigation against a former Federation Internationale de Football Association chief and two businessmen for alleged corruption offences related to the soccer World Cup broadcasting rights.

The 2018 and 2022 World Cups will be played in Russian Federation and Qatar respectively, while the 2026 and 2030 tournaments have not yet been awarded.

The French former TV presenter was in Switzerland on Wednesday to testify at the Court of Arbitration for Sport in his appeal hearing against a 10-year ban by Federation Internationale de Football Association for financial wrongdoing and abuse of expenses.

"Following a request by the office of the Attorney General of Switzerland (OAG) the beIN SPORTS office in Boulogne-Billiancourt (France) were searched this morning", the statement read.

Since FIFA's much-discredited executive committee picked Russian Federation and Qatar in December 2010, the gas-rich emirate has bought up PSG with sovereign wealth and installed Al-Khelaifi as president. PSG paid Barcelona a record Euro 222 million (USD 264 million) for Neymar and Al-Khelaifi vowed that the acquisition would bring the Champions League title to the Paris side within two years.
