PARIS, France -- FIFA President Sepp Blatter said Tuesday that if he is re-elected in June to a fourth term in charge of football's world governing body, he would not run again in 2015.

Blatter, 75, has been president of FIFA for 13 years and has just one opponent this year, as Qatari Mohamad bin Hammam recently joined the race. Bin Hammam is president of the Asian Football Confederation.

The vote for FIFA president is June 1 in Zurich, Switzerland. Blatter revealed his intentions at the UEFA Congress on Tuesday, when UEFA re-elected Michael Platini as president for a second term.
