Long after the trophies have been lifted, FIFA’s iconic competitions deliver substantial social, financial and environmental returns for the wider community.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Legacy Fund continues to deliver projects despite COVID-19 disruption. The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Legacy Fund was signed as a contract of agreed objectives with a value of USD 100 million.
A comprehensive sustainability report on the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™, based on social, environmental and economic pillars, concluded that EUR 108 million was generated through the competition, 80% of total transportation was taken by public means
(low-emission) and 100% of natural sites were respected, notably by utilising existing venues and not building new stadiums.
