The consultation process
There are no predetermined objectives in the Future of Football process. Instead, FIFA is honouring its pledge to be a forum for meaningful debate by engaging a wide range of stakeholders in open dialogue before proposing solutions or making decisions.
Concrete ideas and options will be proposed by the end of 2021 after players, member associations, confederations, leagues, media and fans have all had their say.
