MAXIMISE OUR DEVELOPMENT IMPACT

Maximise our impact on global football development

FIFA’s statutory objective is to improve the game constantly and promote it globally. In the first implementation phase of the 2020-2023 period outlined in The Vision, the organisation worked towards achieving a greater geographical proximity to its member associations (MAs).

It also laid building blocks for further growth through many examples of reinforced governance structures and development of professionals and systems operating within them.
