Welcome to the ByTheMin of the FIFA elections. Reform is on the table. And a new president. REJOICE WORLD! Aye...maybe not yet...

5 men running for the role as President. The good news, Blatter isn't one. The bad news, it may not be greener the other side of the fence.

But who are in the running? Well...it's between Jerome Champagne, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Tokyo Sexwale, Gianni Infantino, Sheikh Salman

You may have heard of a couple of them. Here's your run down of the runners and riders, one-by-one, poilcy-by-policy. Oh how kind!

JEROME CHAMPAGNE: Former Fifa general secretary. Failed to get the election cancelled at the last minute too.

PRINCE ALI BIN AL-HUSSEIN: Current president of the Jordanian Football Association. Lost last years election to Sepp.

TOKYO SEXWALE: South African anti-apartheid campaigner. Massive outsider today.

GIANNI INFANTINO: Acting head of UEFA. Expert at running a draw too.

SHEIKH SALMAN: Current Asian Football Confederation president and Fifa vice-president. Favourite to win.

Things are due to get under way properly at 12noon GMT. I know...it's very exciting. But please just hang on a wee bit longer.
