FIFA launches consultation on Future of the Sport


World football governing body FIFA said on Wednesday it is launching a consultation on the future of the sport with particular attention being given to aspects such as match calendars, improving fan experience and the laws of the game.

The consultation process will involve various stakeholders like players, coaches, clubs, leagues, medical staff, media and commercial partners and fans, with FIFA’s chief of global football development Arsene Wenger leading the study.

The consultation process will focus on aspects such as organising “meaningful competitions” without adding dates to the match calendar and ensuring sporting merit is given a priority to give every country and player a fair chance.
