FIFA Forward is a “step change” for global football development and the way we share the success of the FIFA World Cup with our member associations.

It is built on three principles to provide 360 degree, tailor-made support for football development in each of our member associations and the six confederations:
• more investment,
• more impact,
• more oversight.

The aim is to improve the way we develop and support football across the globe, so that the sport can reach its potential in every nation and so that everyone that wants to take part can do so without barriers.BUY FIFA COINS

More investment 
We are significantly increasing our financial support for member associations and football development to 5 million USD per four-year cycle for each member association from 1.6 million USD per cycle.

This means each association has access to 750,000 US dollars per year for football projects such as pitches, competitions and women’s football.

And every association also receives up to 500,000 US dollars per year for running costs in areas including administration and governance.

We are increasing our financial support for the six confederations so that they can do more to develop football in their regions.

Confederations now receive 40 million US dollars per four-year cycle for football development, up from 22 million US dollars.

We are providing extra help to member associations that need it, from football equipment and internship programmes to up to 1 million US dollars to cover travel costs so that women’s and youth teams can compete in international competitions.

And we will give regional associations up to 1 million dollars per year to reimburse the cost of organising regional youth competitions for young women and men.

More impact 
We aim to improve the impact and efficiency of our investment in development, achieving better and more sustainable results so that football can thrive everywhere.

We are bringing together all of our football project support into one tailor-made contract of agreed objectives and a development plan to meet the specific needs and challenges of each association.

This means our member associations receive comprehensive and intelligent support, depending on their circumstances and the priorities and objectives they set for themselves, so that we make the most out of every dollar spent on football.

We will focus on priority areas for the growth of global football, such as playing infrastructure, women’s and youth football, and domestic competitions.

We want to encourage best practice in football administration among our member associations, so that football has a strong foundation around the world.

We will reward associations for fulfilling a range of criteria that we believe are necessary for the sustainable and responsible management of football at national level.
