More Details

Judgment at TJ-RJ determined the president of the STJD, José Perdiz, as an intervenor in the highest entity of Brazilian football.

There will be a new election in 30 days but in the meantime, Ednaldo can appeal the ruling.

The president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) Ednaldo Rodrigues was removed from his post on Thursday by a Rio de Janeiro court, said the State Court of Justice.

The court annulled an assembly of the organisation held in 2022 in which Rodrigues was elected to lead the CBF until 2026 and named the president of the Superior Court of Sports Justice Jose Perdiz as interim head.

Perdiz will be responsible for organising a new election within 30 days, according to the court decision.

The CBF confirmed through a spokesperson that they are aware of the court decision and are analysing appropriate measures.

The ruling comes in response to a request from former CBF vice-presidents who lost their posts under an agreement signed in 2022 by the CBF with the Public Prosecutor's Office over the electoral process.

In Thursday's decision, the Rio de Janeiro Court of Justice ruled that the Conduct Agreement signed between the Public Prosecutor's Office and the CBF was illegal.
