fifa cf1518 developmentWith the article yesterday we found that FIFA has financed, through the federations, projects for the renovation and construction of sports facilities, an opportunity, in my opinion, to be considered, given that access to sports credit is mission impossible and female football clubs too often have to carry out their sports activities in facilities run by male companies, with all the complications of the case and the huge costs to be met.

With this article, I want to introduce you to the new development programs that FIFA makes available to the federation for football and rose up to 2018. Programs ranging from teaching to football material and financial assistance. The programs set up for the next four years are aimed at promoting and creating opportunities at all levels for women and girls.

FIFA has established guidelines that provide all 209 member federations (AGs) with the information necessary to request and benefit from women's football development programs for the 2015-2018 period.

The programs have been developed on the basis of feedback from the federations and confederations as well as from players, coaches, referees and officials who participated in the 2011-2014 programs.

In total, there are nine different types of programs to choose from, and focus on four main areas of football development: competitions, management, training and promotion, already included in the "Goals" campaign launched in 2011 to entice and involve young girls and women to soccer.

The new guidelines also outline ten key principles of women's football development, which were defined by the FIFA Women's Football Task Force and endorsed in the 64 FIFA Congress of the 11 June 2014.

The federations can submit applications on an annual basis by the end of October.

FIFA waits for and helps affiliated federations and confederations to support and develop women's football. Much progress has been made, but there is still a lot of work to be done to tap the true potential for growth.
UEFA and FIFA are there! .... we are waiting to learn about the development programs for women's football announced yesterday by the FIGC but in the meantime we will do without direct Rai Sport and Odeon TV ... and I do not think it is a good omen!
