Congress Review Working Group talks conclude in Sydney

Officials from FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) have concluded three days of meetings with Football Federation Australia (FFA) and a range of football stakeholders to discuss the establishment of a working group to review FFA’s Congress.

At a joint meeting of major stakeholders today, the visiting FIFA/AFC officials thanked each group for its contribution and urged everyone involved to continue the positive dialogue as part of the review process.

FIFA will now decide on the terms of reference for the Congress Review Working Group, including its composition, mandate and timelines.

A decision is expected from FIFA within two to three weeks.

FFA Chairman Steven Lowy AM echoed the sentiment expressed by other participants in the talks by thanking the FIFA/AFC delegation for their ongoing support in the evolution of football governance in Australia.
