Chuck Blazer, the soccer official who turned into a federal informant and became a central figure in the 2015 FIFA corruption scandal, might not be done revealing secrets.
Blazer, a member of FIFA’s governing council for nearly two decades, secretly cooperated with United States authorities for years before the Department of Justice shocked the soccer world with its sweeping indictment of dozens of soccer leaders and marketing executives in May 2015. Blazer died in 2017, before he could be sentenced for his crimes.

He died owing millions to creditors, including the Internal Revenue Service and his former employer, the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football, one of soccer’s six regional governing bodies. And now the I.R.S. and the soccer association, known as Concacaf, are among the groups with access to eight storage lockers in New Jersey that hold a trove of Blazer’s personal effects.
Inside those lockers, alongside what one person familiar with the content has described as “a bunch of junk,” are audiotapes recorded by Blazer and documents that are believed to be notes of meetings with his lawyers that include names of potential wiretap targets. After confronting Blazer with evidence of his own crimes in 2011, F.B.I. investigators turned him into a confidential informant who wore a recording device to gather incriminating evidence against other officials.
Thanks in part to Blazer’s cooperation, the Department of Justice built a case in which more than 40 individuals and organizations were charged in two separate indictments. Some of the most senior figures in world soccer were implicated, including several of Blazer’s former FIFA colleagues.
The notes in the storage lockers contain the names of some of the officials named in the charges, according to a person who has had access to the lockers, but also those of others whom Blazer sought to record who have so far avoided prosecution.
Blazer eventually pleaded guilty — secretly — to 10 charges, including bribery, money laundering and tax evasion, in 2013.
James Estabrook, the lawyer responsible for Blazer’s estate, declined to comment on the items Blazer left behind in the lockers when he died, or about the efforts by the I.R.S., Concacaf or anyone else to gain access to them.
Blazer’s girlfriend in the last years of his life, Mary Lynn Blanks, said in an interview that she was aware of the lists Blazer had made, and confirmed that as many as 100 names were on them, including several officials from the Americas who were eventually indicted.
“I even had that list — there were two groups of people on the list, the people who he was involved in business that had a chart, one page would say person’s name, their relationship to him and their phone number, and whether or not he would allow them to be wiretapped,” Blanks said.
Blazer, a large man with an appetite for the finer things in life, was for decades the most senior American in world soccer, wielding power through his Concacaf post but also his seat on FIFA’s governing body from 1996 to 2013. That position on FIFA’s executive board granted him a vote on the awarding of valuable hosting rights and a say in other contracts during an era when many of those transactions, investigations later showed, were rife with bribery and self-dealing.
In addition to the audiotapes and documents, the lockers contain other reminders of Blazer’s life in soccer, including oversize FIFA suits that were tailored for Blazer’s immense frame, as well as other items whose value is unlikely to satisfy the millions of dollars he owed his creditors when he died.
Earlier this year, for example, Concacaf settled a lawsuit with Blazer’s estate in which it accused Blazer of using a series of companies to cheat the Miami-based organization out of millions of dollars over two decades. Concacaf is unlikely to see any of the million settlement, however, given that the I.R.S. holds priority in its efforts to recover almost as much in unpaid federal income taxes.
Elizabeth Manzo, the administrator for Blazer’s estate, told the court last month that Blazer’s assets were worth less than million.
In his lifetime, Blazer had frequently explained his lavish lifestyle to anyone who asked as the fruit of his success as a day trader of considerable skill. Visitors to his apartment in Trump Tower in Manhattan often would find him seated at a desk behind a computer screen, from where he said he executed his investment strategies.
The truth, later revealed in court documents, painted a far different picture of his income streams. In a 2013 guilty plea, Blazer acknowledged that for years he had been accepting bribes linked to the awarding of soccer tournaments, including several World Cups, and for lucrative television and sponsorship contracts.
Blanks, Blazer’s former girlfriend, said over the years that Blazer had asked her to arrange for items to be sent to the lockers. “He didn’t like throwing anything away,” she said.
When Blanks pressed Blazer — whose enormous size led him to use a motorized scooter to get around late in his life — to part with items he could no longer use, including in-line skates and bicycles, she said he replied, “You can give away my stuff when I’m dead.”
Now, many of Blazer’s assets in the United States have been accounted for. He forfeited .9 million when he pleaded guilty. The Trump Tower apartments were rented and paid for by Concacaf. Even Max, the parrot he used to allow to rest on his shoulder, is gone, living with a former aide in Queens.
But the fate of one of his valuable purchases, a 1952 Mercedes-Benz Adenauer, remains uncertain. The classic car, which could be worth more than 0,000, is gathering dust in a subterranean parking garage at FIFA’s headquarters in Zurich. Blanks, whose father was an automobile engineer, said Blazer had bought the car for her as a gift because it was made in the year of her birth, and he had told her he would one day sign it over to her.
“He only put it in my name in words,” she said. “But you know what his words are worth.”B:
