Congratulations to the graduates of the FIFA Football Executive Programme for French-speaking African FIFA Member Associations!

Last week, 38 participants from 19 African FIFA Member Associations presented their Final Projects to grow the Game in the continent.

Organised by FIFA and CIES in partnership with Université Cheikh Anta Diop, the programme is designed to provide General Secretaries and other senior staff of FIFA Member Associations with modules on governance, management, communication, marketing, strategy, infrastructure, sustainability and event management.

The programme started in Dakar (Senegal), and ended online for the last sessions.

Speaking about the completion of the latest edition, Céline Zigaul, Development Programme Manager at FIFA said, “FIFA thanks CIES for its expertise and for the good management of the programme, as well as for its flexibility and innovation. This programme marks a new step for FIFA to guide African football to the next level”.

CIES is proud to have been chosen once again as FIFA’s educational partner and to have been able to contribute to the growth of football through education.

Thank you to all the participants for their commitment and well done!
