Goal Programme: Mission and Goals
© FIFA.com

The Goal Programme enables beneficiary member associations to implement projects designed to develop football in their countries. It is an expression of solidarity that gives national associations with few resources at their disposal the tools they need to function and grow.

Though each member association has the right to request funding for a project, the programme is essentially aimed at associations with the most pressing needs yet without the resources to respond to them. Goal projects can also provide additional funding for larger projects for which national associations have been able to raise part of the necessary funding.

The objectives of the Goal Programme are laid out in its regulations.

The Goal Programme supports projects tailored to the needs of member associations in the following areas:

  • Administration
  • Training
  • Youth football
  • Infrastructure
  • Other development projects catering for specific needs may also be considered.
