Last year FIFA launched its first-ever Women’s Football Strategy in line with the organisation’s overall strategic road map FIFA 2.0 which aims to grow the game of football, protect its integrity and bring it to all.
The FIFA’s Women’s Football Strategy is committed to harnessing the power of football and using competitions to highlight the positive social impact the game has on women and girls around the world. These principals were the inspiration behind the convention and its discussions will focus on the five strategic pillars of the FIFA Women’s Football Strategy:
- Develop and Grow
- Communicate and Commercialize
- Govern and Lead
- Educate and Empower
