Memories to last a lifetime as the FIFA President Welcomes the 22nd edition FIFA Master class to Zurich

FIFA President Gianni Infantino welcomed the FIFA Master 22nd edition class to the FIFA headquarters in Zurich on Friday as part of a field visit which created memories to last a lifetime for the class.

An inspirational speech by President Infantino began this special trip and was followed by presentations from senior staff working in areas such as Corporate Communications, Member Associations, Legal, Football Technology and HR. There were also several appearances throughout the day by former students now working at FIFA. Indeed, currently 70 course graduates from the total 600 alumni are now working at the organisation in various roles.

In the evening, the visit to the home of football concluded with the now traditional football match between members of the current class and FIFA staff.

The previous day was also busy for the students as they began their stay in Zurich with a visit to the FIFA Museum. Here, the class had the opportunity to learn more about the important work of the museum, tour the vast collection of football artefacts and also to visit the comprehensive documentation centre. This will be an important resource as the students continue to work on their Final Project research.

Thank you to President Infantino for such a warm welcome and to everybody at both FIFA and the FIFA museum who made this such a memorable few days for the 22nd edition class.
