With 211 associations affiliated to FIFA today, world football's governing body has been dubbed the "United Nations of Football ". Between 1975 and 2002 alone, more than 60 associations were accepted as members. FIFA supports the associations financially and logistically through various programmes and grants them a number of attractive rights and privileges. But they also have obligations. As representatives of FIFA in their countries, they must respect the statutes, aims and ideals of football's governing body and promote and manage our sport accordingly.
The Professional Football Department was established in January 2016 as part of a modern approach to increase the level of engagement between FIFA and professional football stakeholders. The establishment of PFD is complemented by the newly created Football Stakeholders Committee.

This exceptional building by Swiss architect Tilla Theus is also symbolically the home of the international football community, of the 211 member associations and the 270 million players, coaches, referees and other participants around the world.
Our aim is to provide top-level medical services at FIFA tournaments, to keep football free from doping, and to protect and improve the health of all who play football, from grassroots to elite level around the world.
