2nd Edition - 2023

FIFA Executive Programme in Anti-Doping


The FIFA Executive Programme in Anti-doping aims at providing an in-depth analysis of the main regulatory, institutional and scientific aspects of anti-doping in sport. Since the establishment of the World Anti-doping Agency (WADA) back in 1999, the fight against doping in sport has evolved dramatically. The interaction between the WADA Code, Sports Governing Bodies regulations and national legislation has led a considerable complexity in this field.
