The First Minister, Carwyn Jones, says those at the top of Fifa seem to be 'in total denial' amid ongoing allegations of corruption.
In a statement he said he backs the Welsh FA's 'vote for change and reform'.
Two Welsh Labour MPs have added their voices to the calls for Sepp Blatter to stand down as President of FIFA following the arrests in Switzerland as part of an FBI anti-corruption investigation. The Football Association of Wales has said it will vote against Sepp Blatter's re-election as FIFA President.
Rhondda MP Chris Bryant, who's the new Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, spoke on behalf of the Labour Party when the FIFA arrests were raised at Westminster.
Stephen Doughty MP suggested that Sepp Blatter was not the only FIFA officlal who should quit. He said that after years of allegations about the Zurich based organisation, the Swiss authorities also had some questions to answer.
The Secretary of State, John Whittingdale, said the Swiss authorities were now clearly taking the matter very seriously and working with the FBI. He said a change in leadership at FIFA was badly needed and he was pleased that the UK's four football's associations were all backing UEFA's call for action. He added that "this is merely the latest sorry episode to suggest that FIFA is a deeply flawed and corrupt organisation".
The Football Association of Wales (FAW) says its executives will be voting for Prince Ali bin al-Hussain of Jordan in the Fifa Presidential Elections tomorrow.
It comes amid continued allegations of corruption at the very top of world football.
