FIFA announces Terms of Reference for Congress Review Working Group

FIFA has announced the terms of reference for a Working Group to review football’s representative Congress in Australia.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) Chairman Steven Lowy AM welcomed receipt of the terms of reference and said FFA looked forward to working with FIFA, the Asian Football Confederation and all Australian football stakeholders to expand the Congress.

“FFA supports expansion of the Congress to reflect the evolution of football in Australia and balance the interests of each part of the game. This should include significant movement towards gender equality at all levels of governance,” he said.

“FFA also welcomes the reference to governance of the Hyundai A-League because we want to work with the clubs and other stakeholders on a new ownership and operating model for the League that will benefit the whole of the game.”
