Football Development

FIFA Regional Development Offices

The FIFA Regional Offices were established in order to strengthen, modernise and better support our members, coordinating our activities in the respective regions and assisting them in the implementation of the FIFA Forward Programme.

Gianni Infantino
FIFA President

Located around the world, FIFA’s Regional Development Offices provide substantive guidance to help FIFA’s member associations grow the game for all and at all levels, especially through the FIFA Forward Programme. They also support the FIFA member associations on a variety of other matters and act as a key conduit in facilitating football development activities locally, in close cooperation with FIFA’s headquarters in Zurich and its Paris office.

Thanks to the Regional Development Offices, FIFA is closer to its members than ever before. These offices embody FIFA’s presence around the world. Through them, FIFA can better understand the challenges that member associations face in their regions and provide needs-based support with a view to developing and promoting football worldwide.
