AFA HQ raided during investigation into television money

The headquarters of the Argentine Football Association (AFA) was today subjected to a judicial search, as part of an investigation into how television money given to the governing body as part of the 'Football for Everybody' program is shared out.

The building, located on Viamonte street in the heart of Buenos Aires City, was targeted due to a criminal complaint made by City legislator Graciela Ocaña. The politician aims to uncover exactly in what manner the funds received by the AFA from the government in return for live broadcasting rights are distributed amongst its member clubs.

The AFA was raided to look for information about the management of public funds from Football for Everybody," Ocaña explained during an interview with La Red following the search.

"We want to know how much income the AFA receives from Football for Everybody and if then it was passed along to the clubs

Amongst those implicated in the complaint are Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich and the late president of the entity, Julio Grondona, who passed away last Wednesday.
