Football is becoming more and more global. In the same vein, FIFA strives to ensure that its competitions are genuinely global events in terms of inclusivity, location, audience and, most of all, impact.
A. ADOPT GLOBAL AND INCLUSIVE FORMATS
FIFA’s competitions should reflect the concept of inclusivity to the greatest extent. To that end, tournament formats should ensure that boys and girls, men and women – whether they play for clubs or national teams – have the chance to face opponents from all over the world more regularly.
B. CREATE MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR MEMBERS TO HOST A FIFA TOURNAMENT
Hosting a tournament, even a youth tournament, can have a massive impact on the development of football in a country, and FIFA should provide this opportunity to an increasing number of member associations by constantly improving its bidding processes and providing close support to the interested members.
C. REACH OUT TO AND INTERACT WITH GLOBAL AUDIENCES
Within the football environment, digital technologies provide faster interactions and stronger engagement with wider audiences. FIFA should leverage these opportunities to establish a deeper and even greater global connection with the football community.
D. CREATE GLOBAL IMPACT
Truly global competitions create a truly global impact. FIFA should work to ensure that the social, financial and environmental progress generated by a tournament make a difference beyond the borders of the host country, reaching football communities around the world.
