As the drama intensified, FIFA announced that an extraordinary meeting of its executive committee would meet in Zurich on October 20.
Some senior FIFA members suggested that the meeting could discuss postponing the election to replace Blatter, who has already announced that he will stand down, currently slated for February 26.
That development followed growing calls for an emergency meeting after the suspension of Blatter, UEFA president Michel Platini and FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke.
The row over Blatter's suspension had already taken a fresh twist as FIFA's ethics watchdog rejected the 79-year-old's claims he was not allowed to give evidence before he was banned, saying he was given 'all his rights'.
Blatter's lawyers confirmed they had filed an official appeal and asked for further hearings with the ethics committee.
As per the reports, Blatter had complained that he only found out about his suspension after it was made public.
But ethics committee spokesman Andreas Bantel said Blatter had been given the chance to put his case on October 1.
Platini also plans to appeal against his 90-day suspension.
Blatter, who has led FIFA since 1998, was provisionally banned by the ethics watchdog as Swiss prosecutors investigate him for criminal mismanagement.
