The president of the Football Federation of Samoa says the possible removal of Sepp Blatter's name from their national playing arena is an important topic, but one that has yet to be raised.

The suspended FIFA President was bestowed the chiefly title of Toleafoa while on a visit to Samoa and the playing arena was named the Toleafoa Joseph Sepp Blatter Football Fields in his honour.

FFS President Laupama Tokan Solomona says Blatter is taking his appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, so they will wait until everything in FIFA is settled before discussing the issue.

The football facilities in the Faleata Sports Complex are a 10-minute drive inland from the Apia.
