GENEVA (AP) -- The annual FIFA congress of member nations next month will debate whether to impose age and term limits on candidates for positions at soccer's governing body.

FIFA published the agenda Monday for the May 31 meeting in Mauritius. FIFA president Sepp Blatter, 77, is midway through his fourth term, which expires in 2015.

Blatter and his executive committee couldn't agree last month on specifics to present to the congress meeting. The worst outcome for Blatter would be approval for a previous proposal by the Union of European Football Associations to set an upper age limit of 72 on future FIFA candidates.
