Leoz, who is 84 and has undergone several rounds of heart surgery, has been a member of FIFA's board since 1998. He has been president of CONMEBOL, the South American football confederation, since 1986.
Leoz leaves FIFA in the same week that its ethics judge is expected to announce decisions stemming from an investigation into a World Cup kickbacks scandal.
