FIFA is the abbreviation of ?F?d?ration Internationale de Football Association?. It?s an association governed by Swiss law founded in 1904 and based in Zurich. It has 209 member associations and its goal is the constant improvement of football. Football has the power to bring people together and to break down barriers. It gives FIFA a platform to improve standards of education, health and sustainability, and to raise living standards and quality of life across the world. Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been fired due to corruption and stealing money reaching over 10 million dollars. The new elected FIFA president is the Italian Gianni Infantino who won the election on February 26th. UEFA ?Union of European Football…show more content… Football (Or ?Soccer? in the US) is for everyone and this should be kept out of the beautiful world of football. Let people enjoy football and keep football having advantages instead of liabilities. FIFA?s primary objective is "to improve the game of football constantly and promote it globally in the light of its unifying, educational, cultural and humanitarian values, particularly through youth and development programs". SO instead of this corruption, they should look forward to do things that increase their reputation and improve the world of football as their goal states and make people attracted to football.
