The FIFA Development Globe, an online application created to help worldwide users visualise FIFA’s development work across the world, has been made available as of today, 15 November, on FIFA.com.

The Globe offers FIFA.com users a global perspective on all development initiatives implemented by FIFA, while showcasing the reach and volume of the Financial Assistance Programme (FAP), the Goal programme, PERFORMANCE and technical support projects.

FIFA has also published updated information about the development funds and projects granted to all 209 member associations. Crucial data, including details like the amounts received through FIFA’s FAP and the Goal projects, the names of the local FAP auditors and the identity of local contractors, is now available in the relevant section of each association* on FIFA.com.

Over the past 14 years, FIFA has provided more than USD 1 billion in development funds to its member associations and confederations, of which USD 721.75 million has been transferred to member associations through the FAP, with an extra USD 210 million provided to the six confederations.

An additional USD 250 million has been granted since 1998 by football's world governing body for the implementation of 600 Goal projects in 199 member associations, and USD 35 million has been invested as part of the PERFORMANCE programme.

FIFA’s budget for the 2011-2014 financial cycle amounts to USD 800 million, which represents 56 times more than the amount invested in 1995-1998, when some of the flagship development initiatives were originally launched.
