FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he will stand down in 2015 if he is re-elected in June.
"You know I aspire to another four years. These will be the last four years for which I stand as candidate," he said in a speech to the UEFA Congress on Tuesday.
Blatter faces a challenge from Mohamed Bin Hammam, president of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) at the FIFA Congress in Zurich on June 1.
The 75-year-old Swiss, formerly FIFA's secretary general, has held his post since 1998 and is standing for a fourth term.
Both Blatter and his Qatari opponent are in Paris as guests of UEFA.
