FIFA statement on Congress Review Working Group (CRWG)

FIFA has taken note with satisfaction of the unanimous decision of the members of the Congress Review Working Group (CRWG) in Australia to appoint Ms Judith Griggs as their independent Chairperson. Following her successful completion of an eligibility check carried out by the FIFA Review Committee, Ms Griggs has assumed responsibilities as Chairperson of the CRWG as per its terms of reference.

The main objective of the CRWG is to propose a new composition for the FFA Congress, which ensures a broader and more balanced representation of stakeholders in line with the requirements of the FIFA Statutes. The CRWG will also consider other issues related to the governance of Australian football, including the full participation of women at all levels of football governance.

Ms Judith Griggs is expected to formally convene the CRWG in the coming days. The CRWG will conclude its mandate and submit its proposal to FIFA and AFC by 31 July 2018.
