The date is finally set. Sepp Blatter's successor as FIFA President will be chosen at an extraordinary conference February 26, 2016.
Blatter announced his resignation in June, just four days after winning his fifth presidential term.
Candidates for Blatter's job will need to be nominated by October 26. Among the leaders are UEFA President Michel Platini and Prince Ali of Jordan, Blatter's opponent in the last election.
After some speculation, Blatter has confirmed that he will not be in the running to replace himself.
"I had to do something very special and I did it," Blatter said of his decision to step down. We guess special would be one word for it.
