Friday our Board Made Some Decisions...

Friday morning our Board meeting opened with a presentation by the Russian Bid Committee for the World Cups 2018/2022. Following a short break, 3 hours of discussion and presentation took the Executive Committee through all current and future competitions and an update from recent Committee meetings held in the Miami Beach offices where new direction was provided for many initiatives now in place including the expansion of youth tournaments to 12 finalist and the women's Olympic qualifying to 8 teams. Greater financial assistance will be provided to all hosting associations as FIFA FAP funds are being anticipated to increase this year and into the future.

The great success of the Gold Cup and the Champions League were highlights of the day's reports with special emphasis Pachuca's exciting injury time victory to propel them to the FIFA Club World Cup Final in Abu Dhabi this December.
