Long a staple of the FIFA course programme, the Member Association course programme provides member associations with a limited number of FIFA-run educational courses in the areas of coaching, refereeing, women's football, futsal, administrative and medical matters.
Format of Member Association Courses
The duration of the courses varies according to the topic and financial resources of the organising member association. FIFA is responsible for appointing the course instructor and for providing teaching material and equipment.
FIFA covers the FIFA instructor's international travel expenses, daily allowances and provides teaching material and equipment. The benefiting member association is responsible for all local expenses including the accommodation and local transport of the FIFA instructor and the participants.
