Organisation

What we do

FIFA plays a fundamental role in society, and therefore adherence to good governance principles is fundamental to FIFA’s broader social mission.

With 211 affiliated associations, FIFA supports them financially and logistically through various programmes. As representatives of FIFA in their countries, they have obligations to respect the statutes, aims and ideals of football's governing body and promote and manage our sport accordingly.


Congress

FIFA’s Member Associations and the regional confederations meet once a year to agree on ways to further promote and develop football around the world.
