In July and August, 29 virtual meetings were held with the presidents of FIFA’s MAs, replacing the annual FIFA Executive Football Summits. In total, 205 MAs took part in the meetings, along with the six confederations.
The agenda was primarily focused on the FIFA COVID-19 Relief Plan, as well as on other decisions taken by FIFA during the coronavirus pandemic to help the world football community at all levels.
Each MA was given the opportunity to provide an update on the current status of health and football in their country, as well as to discuss topics of strategic importance, such as men’s and women’s national team football, club football and grassroots youth football.
The MAs identified the FIFA COVID-19 Relief Plan as enabling them to not only cover their own financial losses due to the pandemic, but to also support their wider football communities.
