Banned former FIFA president Sepp Blatter will travel to Moscow on June 19 for a 2-3 day trip to attend the soccer World Cup, his spokesman Thomas Renggli said on Thursday.

Renggli said earlier this week that Blatter had received an open invitation from President Vladimir Putin.

Blatter, who led world soccer's governing body for 17 years, was suspended from the sport for six years for ethics violations in 2015 amid the biggest corruption scandal to shake FIFA.
