The Federation of International Football Federation (FIFA) has launched programmes to help the 211 member associations to further develop women’s football.

“The Programmes will aim to provide member associations with access to additional tailored expertise and support to develop women’s football,” explained the world governing body.
Fifa made it clear that member associations will be able to apply for support across eight key areas of women’s football development during the 2020-2023 period.
“In addition to financial assistance to cover the costs in selected programmes, the FIFA Women’s Development Programme will also provide MAs with access to women’s football experts, additional equipment and technical support within FIFA in order to develop women’s football in their country,” said Fifa.
The FIFA Women’s Development Programme will include the following projects; Women’s Football Strategy, Women’s Football campaign, League Development, Club Licensing, Capacity-Building for Administrators, Coach Education Scholarships and coach Mentorship, Women in Football Leadership.
This development comes few months after Fifa recently announced an additional USD 500,000 grant per Member Association as part of the COVID-19 Relief Plan that will be specifically allocated to women’s football.
