The President of the South Sudan Football Association (SSFA), Francis Amin Micheal will attend a FIFA Executive Football Summit between February 13-15th in Istanbul, Turkey.
“This is another good opportunity for me to interact with several football leaders and also get to learn new things,” said Amin who became SSFA President a year ago.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino is expected to grace the Summit, the second this year after the one held in Marrakech, Morocco.
Since the launch of the FIFA Executive Football Summits in Paris in November 2016 by Infantino, the summits have become a vital exchange platform to discuss strategic football matters and share best practices between member associations’ executives in an open and constructive atmosphere.
Key topics on the agenda for the third edition of the FIFA Executive Football Summits are the future of FIFA’s competitions, the FIFA Forward 2.0 programme, women’s football and video assistant referees (VARs).
“It is of the utmost importance for FIFA to foster a continuous dialogue with all our member associations to better understand their needs and learn from their very diverse experiences. Through the FIFA Executive Football Summits, we can tackle global football matters while considering the local issues facing those running football in the member associations around the world,” says FIFA President Infantino.
