Fans astonished by Fifa president Gianni Infantino’s daring attire, drawing comparisons to Star Wars villain

Introduction to this article:

Gianni Infantino, the president of Fifa, made a bold fashion statement during his announcement of several big fixtures for the 2026 World Cup. This outfit caught the attention of fans, with some even comparing him to a Star Wars villain.

Bold Fashion Statement

The expanded tournament will boast 48 teams instead of the usual 32 and will be spread across THREE countries, with the USA, Canada, and Mexico all playing host. Yesterday’s announcements included confirmation that the iconic Estadio Azteca will hold the opening match of the tournament, while the final will take place at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

Bizarre Outfit Choice

Infantino’s outfit comprised a bizarre hoodie and shirt combo, with a beige top that matched the color of his trousers. He completed the look by throwing a beige suit jacket over the hoodie, attempting to keep things casual by leaving the hoodie and jacket unzipped.

Comparisons to Star Wars Villain

Some cheeky supporters reckoned that Infantino’s unzipped attire made him look like movie baddie Emperor Palpatine from the Star Wars series. Quoting Palpatine from the movies, one noted: “Good, your hate has made you more powerful.” Another added: “Infantino does look like Palpatine.”
