The whistleblower of the FIFA corruption scandal Chuck Blazer has died at 72. The former official provided evidence to US investigators that started the unravel the dirty deeds the soccer organization has been making for years.

For his actions, he’s been banned since 2015 from all football activities for the rest of his life. Prior to his death, he had been battling cancer.

“His misconduct, for which he accepted full responsibility, should not obscure Chuck’s positive impact on international soccer,” his lawyer said to the New York Times.

Blazer was considered a “pivotal figure” in the scandal that led to the downfall and resignation of former president Sepp Blatter. He ran as president of FIFA from 1998 through 2015.

In June 2015, several FIFA employees were arrested for bribery and money laundering. Blatter would eventually be banned from the organization for eight-years initially, but that suspension was reduced to six-years.
