Football Stakeholders

;

Since the approval of wide-reaching reforms in early 2016, FIFA has made ambitious improvements to ensure strengthened dialogue and collaborative decision‑making among football stakeholders.

In its role as world football’s governing body, FIFA is committed to shaping the future of football – both as a game and as an industry – in an inclusive manner and in the best interests of the fans and all the key stakeholders of the sport.

In the past, football governance suffered from a disconnect between the various voices and interests associated with the game and the decisions being made on its future. With the new leadership, and following the governance reform process, FIFA has strengthened the dialogue and collaborative decision-making with football stakeholders.

The European Club Association, World Leagues Forum, FIFPRO and other relevant bodies work with FIFA, its member associations and the confederations on a regular basis to ensure that actions and decisions in strategic areas do not adversely impact the game.
