FIFA’s unparalleled COVID-19 Relief Plan has provided an opportunity to drive positive change in women’s football.
As part of the relief plan, USD 500,000 has been made available to every member association for use specifically in the women’s game. These funds have been used to protect existing leagues and clubs, support diverse development projects and provide peace of mind for footballers at all levels of the game.
A key requirement of FIFA’s funding is that member associations must include a strategic development plan for women’s football as part of their claim. This ensures that women’s football remains at the forefront of their long-term plans.
