Lausanne - FIFA will meet on July 20 to decide the date on which Sepp Blatter's successor as president will be selected, the embattled body said on Thursday.

"The extraordinary FIFA Executive Committee meeting to set the date for the extraordinary elective Congress will take place on July 20, 2015 in Zurich," said a statement.

"During the meeting, the agenda for the elective Congress will be finalised and approved. The extraordinary elective Congress will take place in Zurich between December 2015 and February 2016 as announced by the FIFA president on June 2, 2015."
