Football Association chairman Greg Dyke will give evidence to MPs on the FA's backing for Michel Platini at a parliamentary hearing in two weeks' time.

FIFA sponsors, the Serious Fraud Office and Domenico Scala, the head of FIFA's independent audit and compliance committee are also due to appear at a two-day meeting of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee.

The FA's board has not dropped its backing for Platini as the next FIFA president despite the UEFA president being provisionally banned by FIFA's ethics committee, which is investigating a ?1.35million payment he received from the world governing body.

Committee member Damian Collins has made a number of complaints to the SFO about FIFA's activities and the body will be asked to explain its lack of action.

FIFA's sponsors are also expected to be asked why they took so little action in demanding reform of the scandal-hit world governing body.

The select committee is due to sit on October 27 and 28.

Dyke said last week he was fully prepared to explain the FA's position to MPs and had agreed to do so some time ago.
