Football’s core values are the reason why it is more than a game. It is FIFA’s duty to protect and foster these values, ensuring that they remain strong around the world and maximising their potential to positively impact the football movement as a whole.
A. FIGHT AGAINST RACISM AND ALL OTHER FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION
Discrimination has no place in football or society at large. FIFA is committed to uprooting all forms of discrimination in football by implementing additional anti-discrimination policies, together with grassroots educational programmes and toolkits, to support member associations in addressing these issues.
B. PROMOTE FAIR PLAY AND MUTUAL RESPECT
Respect and fair play are imperatives on and off the pitch. In order to safeguard these crucial values, FIFA will continue to fight match-fixing and doping by implementing its integrity initiatives and reporting mechanisms, as well as setting up dedicated educational programmes.
C. PROTECT HUMAN RIGHTS
FIFA is committed to respecting human rights and strives to promote their protection. FIFA will continue to embed this commitment in all its structures and activities, including the implementation of human rights plans for its tournaments and a growing engagement with confederations and member associations to address human rights risks in the game.
D. EMBED CHILD SAFEGUARDING
Every child who plays or participates in the game has the right to do so in a safe and enjoyable environment, free from any risk of abusive behaviour. In this spirit, FIFA will expand and embed both child and adult safeguarding standards by promoting awareness and best practice solutions through the FIFA Guardians programme.
