ZURICH - FIFA President Sepp Blatter says he needs consent from 209 football nations next month before seeking re-election in 2015.
Blatter says in a FIFA interview that "a mission is never finished. I am available to go on with this mission."
Still, the FIFA leader since 1998 says member countries must say they want him to campaign for another term.
Blatter says "it is to the congress to act, to say yes or no" about his possible candidacy on June 11 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
He would be 79 on election day, next May 29 in Zurich.
The deadline for candidates to declare is January.
UEFA President Michel Platini says he'll decide later this year.
FIFA's former international relations director Jerome Champagne, a longtime Blatter ally, says he is a candidate.
