Soccer fans around the world were shocked by FIFA news, on Wednesday.
Fourteen people, including nine high ranking members of FIFA, were charged with corruption, tax evasion, money laundering, and accepting bribes.
According to the charges, the bribes totaled over one hundred and fifty million dollars.
Some of the bribes were from countries attempting to sway officials into giving their country a World Cup.
Switzerland and the US Justice Department announced that separate investigations had come to the same conclusion.
Police, in Switzerland, arrested seven of the accused, and plan on extraditing them to the US.Six of those charged have already plead guilty.
Officials said that people will possibly be charged, as they laid out details of the massive money conspiracy.
At this time, FIFA president Sepp Blatter is not among those charged, though his vice president, Jeffrey Webb, was among those arrested.
FIFA has previously been accused of corruption, but until now all investigations had been internal.
Fallout, from this surprise, could cost Blatter his fifth term as president, to which he was expected to be voted into this week.
His opponent, Prince Ali bin Al Hussein of Jordan, had already promised to seek out and rid FIFA of any corruption.
